We now know the details of Josh Norman’s deal with the Buffalo Bills, thanks to ESPN’s Dan Graziano.
Josh Norman's Bills contract: $2.8M salary ($1.5 guaranteed), $1.5M roster bonus paid on the 5th day of the league year. Gets another $500K if he's on 53-man on Week 1. Then $200K workout bonus, up to $1M in per-game roster bonuses, incentives based on PT, INTs, Pro Bowl All-Pro.
NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported on Monday that the former All-Pro cornerback was joining the Bills. The team has yet to confirm the signing.
Based on the details of Graziano’s report, if Norman is still on the Bills' roster on March 22 (which should be a virtual certainty) he will have $3 million in total guaranteed and paid out money from the team. The rest of the $6 million of his contract will come in in-season salary and bonuses. If the team were to release Norman prior to opening day, they’d have to take on a $3 million salary cap hit in 2020. If Norman is on the team all season he’ll count the full $6 million against the team’s cap.
