While many Forever Faithful wanted San Francisco 49ers GM Trent Baalke to move all-in for All-Pro CB Josh Norman, that never materialized, as Norman agreed to a five-year deal worth $75 million with the Washington Redskins.

Not a huge surprise to me, as I believe the 49ers are quietly targeting DB Jalen Ramsey, the anticipation is now over as Norman is off to Washington.
