New Redskins teammates react to Josh Norman signing

Josh Norman is officially unofficially a Washington Redskins. See how Redskins players reacted on Twitter.

Cornerback Josh Norman is now a member of the Washington Redskins after agreeing to a whopping five-year, $75 million deal with $50 million guaranteed.

Although the team has not confirmed the signing yet, this is pretty much all the proof we need.

General manager Scot McCloughan, who seems to have gone against his mentality of not spending big money in free agency, may have had the best reaction of all (even though it was not through social media).

Now a look at Norman's new teammates:

Junior Galette was convincing Norman not to consider the New Orleans Saints up until the news broke.

Fellow secondary mate DeAngelo Hall is already raving about the Redskins new-look secondary that boasts Bashaud Breeland and Chris Culliver. Of course it will be interesting to see if Culliver is released after June 1 where the Redskins could save $8 million against the 2016 cap because of his ACL injury last year.

Preston Smith is certainly ready to get after it.

Defensive ends Chris Baker and Ricky Jean Francois wanted to welcome Norman to the team as well.

Inside linebacker Will Compton probably had the best reaction of the night. The context relates to Compton being, more or less, forced to sign a poor paying tender because of his exclusive restricted free agent status after 2015.

Lets not leave at the offense while we are at it with backup running back Chris Thompson joining the fun.

With Norman and quarterback Kirk Cousins, the Redskins have two players who received franchise tags this offseason. Now, teammates.

For the excited fan base, can't wait sounds right.
