Norman reignited the rivalry between both players in an interview with Bleacher Report’s Tyler Dunne, where he labeled the Cowboys receiver “just a guy.”
Bryant said he wouldn’t reply to Norman, but his comment in and of itself promises another contentious set of showdowns this fall.
“No, no, no, no. Why would I respond to that? He’ll see me when he sees me. When I line up against him, we’re going to go at it. That’s what it is,” Bryant said via ESPN.
“I don’t have no words to say to him. … There’s no extra motivation. All I care about is me. All I care about is that first game, that second game, that third game, that fourth game, all the way up to the last game, all the way up to the playoffs.”
Bryant and Norman engaged in numerous on-field confrontations during a November 2016 contest, where both players shouted in each other’s faces. After the game, Norman alleged that Bryant said, “where I’m from, we unload the clip,” an obvious reference to gun violence.
The Cowboys star vehemently denied Norman’s allegation and responded by telling the Redskins to get a refund on the cornerback’s five-year, $70-million contract signed prior to the 2016 season.
Dallas and Washington square off October 29 and November 30.
