Josh Norman intercepts four passes in practice
Despite coming from a small-time college football program at Division 1-AA Coastal Carolina, Josh Norman never doubted that he would ultimately play in the NFL.
The rookie cornerback certainly doesn’t mind tooting his own horn, and has quickly gained a reputation of being cocky.
In June OTAs, the fifth-round pick took a jab at Panthers star wideout Steve Smith, telling the Charlotte Observer that he not only stayed step-for-step the 11-year veteran, but even frustrated him with his defense.
Now, Norman – who missed most of the first two weeks of training camp with a hamstring injury – backed up his off-the-field brazenness with an incredible four-interception performance in Tuesday’s practice.
When asked about his play, the 24-year-old former All-American acted it like it was just another day at the office.
“Just gotta do it again tomorrow,” he told the Charlotte Observer.

The great thing about the NFL is that there are so many positions that every year, there is almost always at least one player who has a breakout year on every team, no matter how good or bad the team is. This is one part in a 32 part segment detailing one potential breakout player for the 2012 NFL season on each NFL team. For the Carolina Panthers, that player is defensive end Greg...
NFL teams training away from their respective civic headquarters are starting to head home. What does that mean, veterans must make the most of waning chances to prank rookies of course. While the Miami Dolphins design horrific haircuts for their rooks, the Carolina Panthers take a different approach. LS J.J. Jansen seemed to have a leading role in adding a "protective layer...
