Former Carolina Panthers cornerback Josh Norman will sign with the Washington Redskins, the team announced.

The deal is reportedly for five-years and worth $75 million with $50 million guaranteed, according to Rapoport.

Earlier this week, Panthers rescinded the franchise tag on Norman to make him a free agent. The team was unlikely to reach a long-term deal with him and he threatened to skip some of the team's upcoming workouts.

Norman visited the Redskins with his family on Friday. He expressed his excitement on joining the Redskins with a tweet.

Norman was among the top cornerbacks in the NFL last season, making 48 tackles and four interceptions on his way to earning All-Pro honors.

Washington has yet to finalize contract talks with franchise-tagged quarterback Kirk Cousins.
