Josh Norman made clear how much he respects Julio Jones, but Norman doesn’t believe his former team had the same type of respect for the Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Sunday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Norman, now with the Redskins, was shocked by the way the Carolina Panthers defended Jones in the Falcons’ 48-33 win. Jones set a franchise record with 300 receiving yards on 12 catches.
“Shoot, just disrespectful to line up a rook against that man like that, like he ain’t the top wide receiver in the league,” Norman said.
Norman, who once borrowed the line from the movie “Jerry Maguire” and said Jones “completes me” because of his ability, figured Jones would dominate all along.
“Man, I told you (the NFC South) is all Julio’s now,” Norman said.
Norman took another jab at his former team Monday on ESPN’s The Dan Le Batard Show, saying “you get what you pay for” after the Panthers surrendered those 300 yards to Jones and a franchise-record 503 passing yards to Ryan.
