Buccaneers "remain in running" for Josh Norman as he visits Washington

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are still in the running for cornerback Josh Norman, according to Jason Cole of Bleacher Report. Norman is currently visiting Washington, however, and is scheduled to head to the San Francisco 49ers next. Cole also mentions the Jacksonville Jaguars and "one more team" as competing for Norman's services -- but over in Jacksonville , Rick Ballou of 1010 XL has reported that the Jaguars and Norman are "cities" apart, so take Cole's report with a grain of salt.

Given the fact that Norman will be visiting at least two teams before coming to Tampa, and the fact that he's extremely likely to get a top-of-the-market contract, it seems highly unlikely he'll end up signing with the Bucs. In fact, it even seems unlikely the Bucs are still seriously in the running for Norman -- clearly they're not his first choice, and the Bucs have been unwilling to spend top dollar on any free agent, no matter how good.

So while the Bucs aren't officially out of the running yet ,don't expect them to actually sign the man.
