Afterwards, several Panthers voiced their displeasure with his actions, and cornerback Cortland Finnegan took things a step further by supposing the wideout had personal issues.
“He may have something in his blood,” Finnegan told reporters after the game. “Maybe it's female related.”
After the game, Norman retweeted an image poking fun at Beckham.
A few other Panthers, including Norman, sounded off.

The Panthers won 38–35 on a last-second field goal to improve to 14–0.
