Josh Norman and Odell Beckham Jr. will no face off at least twice a year for the next several seasons. That possibility became a reality Friday evening when it was announced that Norman, freed by the Carolina Panthers earlier in the weeks, had signed with the NFC East rival Washington Redskins.

Josh Norman's 5-year, $75M deal with the #Redskins includes $50M in guarantees, source said. Wow.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 22, 2016
Beckham and Norman, of course, had an infamous run-in last season when the Panthers faced the New York Giants, with an incensed and provoked Beckham drawing a trio of 15-yard penalties.
This will certainly make for added interest in the Giants-Redskins games. The dates this year are Sept. 25 at MetLife Stadium and Jan. 1 in Landover, Md. Mark your calendars.
