Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman would like to see free-agent wideout Dez Bryant join him in the nation’s capital next season.
“He wouldn’t be a bad addition,” Norman told TMZ Sports. “Hell, come on over! If he can help us win, that’s all that matters at the end of the day.”
The Cowboys announced Bryant’s release Friday after eight seasons.
Norman and Bryant have had a heated rivalry on the field dating back to a 2015 game between the Cowboys and Carolina Panthers.
After Bryant had two catches for 26 yards in a 33-14 loss, Norman told reporters the Cowboys “need to get Dez’s $70 mil back.”
When Norman joined Washington the following year, Bryant remembered the Pro Bowl defensive back’s comment after Dallas knocked off its NFC East rival on Thanksgiving.
“Washington needs to get their money back from Josh Norman,” Bryant told reporters after the Cowboys’ 31-26 win.
Despite Norman’s desire to play with Bryant, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported the Redskins aren’t currently interested in signing the 29-year-old.
