Why the 49ers and Josh Norman could be a perfect match in free agency

Josh Norman was released earlier this offseason by the Washington Redskins, making him an unrestricted free agent. Looking ahead to the rest of the offseason, there are quite a few teams who could call Norman with interest. One of those teams could end up being the San Francisco 49ers.

After making an impressive run all the way to Super Bowl 54, the 49ers know they need to make a few move improvements. They looked on track to defeat the Kansas City Chiefs in the big game, but Patrick Mahomes went off down the stretch and the 49ers had no answer for him.

One of the main areas the 49ers could look to improve this offseason is at the cornerback position. Richard Sherman is still a great player, but he needs help. That is where Norman could come in.

During the 2019 season with the Redskins, Norman had a roller coaster role. He was a starter, but then towards the end of the season he was benched. Norman ended up with 40 tackles, one sack, one forced fumble, one interception, and six defended passes in 12 games.

All of that being said, let’s take a look at why the 49ers and Norman could be a perfect free agency match for each other.
