Norman joins a Buffalo Bills team that was third in total defense last season and fourth in passing defense. In three years as head coach of the Bills, Sean McDermott has led Buffalo to the playoffs twice.
In eight NFL seasons, Josh Norman has been elected to the pro bowl one time. He has recorded 416 total tackles in his NFL career as well as 80 pass deflections, 14 interceptions, and 12 forced fumbles.
