Josh Norman has once again proven that he is nothing but a lot of talk.
The Washington Redskins' cornerback saw tensions boil over with Dallas Cowboys' wide receiver Dez Bryant on Thursday. Following the Cowboys' win, Norman and Bryant got into a physical altercation that ended up in a day's long war of words. Norman continually insisted Bryant was the antagonizer, routinely trying to get a rise out of the fifth-year defensive back.
Norman went as far as to say that Bryant threatened him by saying, "." Bryant on Twitter soon after a video was posted.
Norman initially confirmed twice to the Washington Post that Bryant did indeed threaten him. However on Monday Norman backtracked his claim, clarifying that the Cowboys receiver did not utter the phrase.
Per Tesfatsion, Norman meant for the phrase to be a metaphor for leaving everything out on the field. It seems that there are many other ways of making that point without alluding to gun violence.
He also said he’s done with the entire situation.
“Nothing,” Norman said. “It really wasn’t a situation. It was a game. We lost. They won. That was it.”
Bryant expressed regret on Twitter for how he handled the situation and again apologized on Monday.
“I wish I never did what I did, but that’s OK because it’s over with now,” Bryant said, via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “I’m not even focused on that. I’m not even fitting to open up another can. It’s all said and done. I wish I never done it. It happened. It’s over with. … I have nothing against that guy, I’m pretty sure he’s got nothing against me. This thing is much more bigger than me. I’m here to do my job. That’s what I’m going to continue to keep doing. I addressed that and that’s so far behind me right now.”
Nice to see Bryant taking the high road once again, even when lies are being told about him.
