Here is Norman’s latest Beckham tirade, this one from a book on the Carolina Panthers’ 2015 season. Norman, of course, played for Carolina last year before signing with Washington as a free agent.
“I’ll be honest,” Norman said of Beckham, “I don’t care for the guy at all. ... Now don’t get me wrong, he’s a good player or whatever, but he’s not what he thinks he is. If you hit guys like that, if you completely jam them and shake them up, they can’t relate to that. So they start making excuses like, ‘Oh, he touched me.’ They don’t know how to respond because they never got hit like that. So me, every time I see him, I’m going to hit him in the mouth. I don’t care. Until he stops crying and b----ing.” ...
“He’s yapping over there,” Norman said of Beckham. “And (Beckham doesn’t) even sound like he’s making any sense. He just went (in the draft) in the first round and everything is handed to him. He gets to New York. ... He catches one stupid little ball, and everybody in New York (loves) this guy, because that’s the biggest amount of media in the world. ... So all that went to his big old head, and for some odd reason he thinks he’s somebody that he’s not.”
Beckham and Norman have, as you likely know, been feuding ever since last season’s Giants-Panthers game during which Beckham was flagged three times for personal fouls in a matchup with Norman. He was then suspended for a game.
