NFL Rumors: Panthers' Josh Norman Seeking QB-Level Salary

Carolina Panthers star cornerback Josh Norman is looking to get paid this offseason after a stellar year this past season with the Super Bowl runner-ups. 

The Panthers went 15-1 this past season, but history has shown that most Super Bowl runner-ups don't fare well the next season. Some players retire, leave, or command a lot of salary. 

For Norman, he is looking towards the ballpark of a quarterback-level salary, according to the Charlotte Observer:

Gettleman said last week he’s not worried about Norman’s contract situation becoming a distraction. But Norman, who’s looking for a deal in the neighborhood of $16 million a year, applied public pressure on the Panthers during a couple of national TV appearances last week.

The Panthers would be smart to do what they can retaining Norman, who is arguably the best defensive back in the NFL. 

And you can't blame Norman for wanting such a deal. His talent makes up for it, and you can only make so much in such a small timeframe as an NFL player. You might as well get as much as you can.
