Okay, so it's gonna be one of those podium days.
NFL's new helmet rule:
"But trust me, they'll be looking for that fine. It'll be waiting for you in your locker for sure".#Redskins— Chad Ryan (@ChadwikoRCC) July 27, 2018
New defensive line:
Norman has now dropped "#RollTide" twice in this presser. Clearly the rest of the defense is quite happy with the Allen and Payne picks the last two years.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) July 27, 2018
Josh Norman: We’re young and physical. We now have a defensive line that compete with anyone in the NFL. #Redskins— Lake Lewis Jr (@LakeLewis) July 27, 2018
Norman says he's learning from Scandrick, specifically on concepts of how offenses want to attack.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) July 27, 2018
"I don't know everything. He doesn't know everything. But we're figuring it out together."
Josh Norman: The main goal is getting to the playoffs where anything can happen once there. #Redskins— Lake Lewis Jr (@LakeLewis) July 27, 2018
Norman says Guice is a ball of energy, as are the young guys in his room. Says UDFA Danny Johnson and 2nd year S Fish Smithson as specific guys who bring that enthusiasm.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) July 27, 2018
Josh Norman asked about his mentor role. Starts with Guice. Says they hang. Tries keeping him on the right path. Mentions all that energy.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) July 27, 2018
"We gotta be wary of the deep ball now, because we've got a guy who can get there".— Chad Ryan (@ChadwikoRCC) July 27, 2018
Josh Norman on the changes to the 2018 #Redskins offense.
"His presence as being a rangy guy, shoot, he’ll run to one side of the field like it ain’t nothing. Just moving like that, man, poses a threat to all quarterbacks to be wary of the deep ball now because you’ve got a guy that can get there. When he gets there, he’s coming down and wants to inflict, you know, punishment on anybody. So, when you see a guy like that, you just want to make sure you keep him on the, you know, knowing what he’s supposed to do at all times, talking, communication, help guys out. I think for him, it’s going to help him out a whole bunch for this second year. You know, it’s a year for him, he can be special. He can really actually do some things for our secondary that we don’t have and that’s the big thing we look forward to when we look at Montae Nicholson.”
