Redskins release CB Josh Norman, WR Paul Richardson

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) The Washington Redskins on Friday released cornerback Josh Norman with one year left on the big contract he signed in 2016, and wide receiver Paul Richardson after two disappointing, injury-plagued seasons.

Norman struggled to live up to the expectations set by the $75 million, five-year deal he got after putting together an All-Pro season in Carolina and being released from the Panthers' franchise tag. Washington saves $12.5 million against the salary cap in 2020 by cutting him now.

Releasing Norman a month before free agency could pave the way to give cornerback Quinton Dunbar a raise. Dunbar has said he wanted to know where he stood with the organization.
