Odell Beckham Jr. of the New York Giants apparently is not the only superstar wide receiver who has issues with Washington Redskins’ cornerback Josh Norman. After several verbal confrontations and a post-game sideline altercation, Dez Bryant of the Dallas Cowboys toasted Norman after Thursday’s 31-26 victory by the Cowboys.

Dez had 2 catches for 19 yds on Norman.
All through the week I will post film how Norman got exposed... https://t.co/WKWE9IdQYr— Dez Bryant (@DezBryant) November 25, 2016
I'm not disrespectful to players in league ..I love this game but Norman takes it past football.. if you going spit fire be able to take it— Dez Bryant (@DezBryant) November 25, 2016
Back in September, after months of Beckham-Norman feud headlines, Bryant had said he and Norman shared a “mutual” appreciation.
"He has earned his respect in this league. When you go up against a guy like that, you're going to have bring your best because if you don't, he'll get the best of you."
That apparently went out the window Thursday night.
There were issues during the game.

There was Bryant with some advice for Washington management.

Norman, of course, signed a five-year, $75 million contract with the Redskins during the offseason.
There was a post-game response from Norman.

So, Dez and Odell have more in common than being star receivers. The NFC East certainly is an interesting place these days.
