Norman had great reaction to 49ers' contract offer


The 49ers added much-needed depth to their secondary in former All-Pro cornerback Josh Norman. 

Previously a free agent, Norman was waiting around for the right opportunity when the 49ers came calling. 

Before the deal was made official Monday afternoon, a video posted to the professional athlete-run Instagram page "goatfarmmedia" showed a behind-the-scenes look into the moment Norman agreed to join the 49ers. 

As casual as could be, Norman answers a call from (what appears to be) his agent while in the middle of an interview. 

It takes all but 30 seconds for the nine-year veteran to agree to become a 49er.

Norman likely will play a depth role at corner behind starters Jason Verrett and Emmanuel Moseley. It's not likely that we'll see Pro Bowl-caliber play from Norman, but he still provides the 49ers' secondary with much-needed depth. 

"Well there ya have it, it looks like we're going to the Bay," Norman said with a grin.
