The Pittsburgh Steelers are NOT going to pursue CB Josh Norman

Despite the report that the Pittsburgh Steelers put in a call for free agent cornerback Josh Norman yesterday, it appears that the organization will NOT pursue him this offseason. There is no doubt that the Steelers still need to address the defensive back situation and that a cornerback as good as Norman could make this team more successful in the secondary.

The Carolina Panthers removed the franchise tag on the cornerback yesterday. Steeler fans all over continued to ask questions whether or not the team will address the defensive needs by acquiring a top corner in Norman. While it would definitely be an outstanding addition to the secondary, Pittsburgh does NOT have the amount of money to spend on an athlete seeking around $15 million a season.

According to Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review and Jason La Candora of NFL Insider, the Steelers are NOT going to pursue Josh Norman and this was very obvious.

Norman is currently a 28 year old cornerback who has just seen recent success over the last two seasons. He was drafted in 2010 in the 5th round. It could be possible that his defense over the last few seasons gave him the type of success in order to win football games. Norman will most likely NOT be a Pittsburgh Steeler in 2016.

    The Steelers will never break the bank for a cornerback , even one of Josh Normans caliber . They simply dont value the cornerback position like alot of other teams . Maybe thats the reason they havent drafted one in the first round since 1997 .
