When the Jets’ Tim Norman will be wearing a New Jersey jersey
Tim Normans last appearance on the field in the NFL was a Week 3 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.
However, after the team was eliminated from the playoffs, Norman went back to playing in a backup role in the first week of the season.
After a couple of starts on the bench, he finally got a shot in the cage on Sunday when the Jets faced the Buffalo Bills.
The rookie outplayed rookie left tackle Laremy Tunsil in a 25-20 victory.
Norman, who was the Bills’ starting left tackle for most of the preseason, was the only tackle on the team to record a sack, a hit and a hurry.
He also had an interception.
However the team lost to the Bills by a combined score of 22-3.
Normans final snap was a sack of Rex Burkhead, a play that was called back when he fell on his face.
“I fell on my face,” Normans told NJ Advance Media.
“He was right there.
So I’m going to give it back.”
Normans’ first career start came against the Chicago Bears on Oct. 13, 2015.
The Jets went 3-1 at home.
Normas best game came against Tennessee on Oct., 23, 2015, where he led the team with four sacks.
His sack total was tied for the most in the league at the time.
Normands last game came in Week 4, when he started for the Bills.
He played in the game and recorded a sack.
“The most important thing is to get the ball out and make plays,” Norman said.
“You can’t just throw the ball all the time.”
The Jets signed Norman to a four-year, $23.4 million contract on July 28, 2017.
He was a fourth-round pick of the Arizona Cardinals in the 2015 NFL draft.
The team did not offer an injury report for the rookie on Monday, and the team will not release him until the Jets finish the regular season.
