The Washington Redskins have won the race to sign highly-prized free agent cornerback Josh Norman. Adidas Originals NMD R1 NZ . Norman only became a free agent last week after the Carolina Panthers rescinded his franchise tag and, according to NFL Networks Ian Rapoport, he has signed a $75m (£52m) deal with the Redskins, with $50m (£34.7m) of that salary guaranteed.The 28-year-old was an All-Pro corner last season and a big part of the Panthers run to Super Bowl 50, where they were beaten by the Denver Broncos. Washington emerged as a front-runner to sign Norman soon after he entered free agency, and they were able to get a deal done quickly, to the surprise of many including the player himself.When [the franchise tag was rescinded] it was crazy because Mr. Allen, the [Redskins] President, hit me up right away with a jersey, No. 24, Norman said.And the crazy thing is I didnt see it until a day and a half later because I was still getting over the fact of what was going on.Being somewhere 28 years all your life and just in a blink of an eye, gone, just like that, Ive just never been without a job. That small amount of hours, everything went rapid and I came up here and it just felt right.I just feel so great about being here and the craziest part about it is you guys have been so nice to me since Day One.I mean everything [since] Ive been here since I got off that plane, you guys have been so nice to me. I felt that homecoming and everything that was here. And so when I say that, everything I put into it since Day One, Im going to give back just that much for it tenfold.

Neal scored at 1:03 of the extra session to lift the Penguins past the Hurricanes 4-3 on Friday night. NHL scoring leader Sidney Crosby had a goal, and Chris Conner and Deryk Engelland each scored in the third period. The Eastern Conference leaders rallied from one goal down in the third period and took a 3-2 lead -- only to let it slip away late in regulation before Neals goal in OT gave them their 13th win in 15 games. "Thats where our team has matured and changed, and I think we regrouped and didnt let it bother us," Neal said. "We come right back and get one." Neal, who also had two assists, ended it by beating Justin Peters with a wrist shot off a slick give-and-go from Jussi Jokinen -- the former Carolina forwards third assist. "When we got our third one, I felt pretty good about it," goalie Marc-Andre Fleury said. "Disappointed to give up that third goal, but it was nice to see (Neal) finish it up for us." Fleury stopped 31 shots in his 500th career game. "Marc was our best player tonight, for sure," coach Dan Bylsma said. Drayson Bowman scored with 2:29 left in regulation. Nathan Gerbe had a goal and an assist, Andrej Sekera scored and Peters finished with 22 saves for the Hurricanes. They let a third-period lead slip away for the second straight game. Carolina also lost its seventh in eight games with four coming in overtime, and fell 20 points behind the Penguins. "When you look back, you feel like you had a really good hockey game," Carolina coach Kirk Muller said. "Its during those first 60 minutes, we had some opportunities to capitalize, and when you dont, youre going to be in tight games and youve got to know how to play with the lead then. Its a very thin line of winning and losing. When you give up a couple of chances and they score, thats the difference." Engelland -- who was playing in his ffirst game since serving a five-game suspension for a check to the head of Detroits Justin Abdelkader -- put a hard shot past Peters with 6:45 left to give the Penguins a 3-2 lead. Adidas NMD R2 NZ. But Bowman forced overtime when he slipped his late wraparound past Fleury. Engelland was one of a few Penguins making their return to the ice. They also got defenceman Brooks Orpik and forward Tanner Glass back from injuries. Orpik missed eight games with a concussion while Glass was out for the past month with a broken hand. The Penguins tied it at 2 at 1:58 of the third period when Conner slipped a backhand past Peters. That came after Carolina built a 2-1 lead following a wild end to the first period and start to the second. Sekera scored the games first goal in the final moments of the first period, beating both Fleury and the buzzer with a high backhand that was upheld by a brief review that determined that there were 1.3 seconds left. That came about a minute after the Penguins had a goal disallowed because the whistle blew before the puck crossed the line during a pile-up in front of Peters and defenceman Ron Hainsey. Crosby then tied it 16 seconds into the second when he slipped a backhand past Peters for his NHL-best 55th point. But the tie didnt last long -- Gerbe put Carolina back up 14 seconds later by converting on Alexander Semins hard shot. "You cant be afraid to have the lead and play," Muller said. "Youve got to keep playing the way you played the first two periods. You cant sit back. Thats what we tried to emphasize."
