Josh Norman joins the Las Vegas Raiders.
He has been in Buffalo for less than a year, but Josh Norman, Buffalo Bill’s most trusted man, has already fallen in love with the city, as we saw last week.
This week Norman showed his love for his new home, from his initiative to help small businesses in Buffalo affected by the coronavirus pandemic to his wanderings across the city.
This place really is a hidden gem, and the reason I say that is because the weather is perfect, just like spring and summer, Norman said in a video conference earlier this week. I go to the people, but all in all, it’s perfect. Then, when you sit down and look at all the beautiful trees and their colors. You think she’s such a beautiful creature. Then you go into town and you meet people, and you meet them. They are: Hey, how’s it going? This is not a conversation where no one says anything, but where you’re actually asked. And so easy to move.
Most Bill’s players get to know the city of Buffalo from what they see from the outside. Josh Allen has been agitated several times this season after Beals fans expressed their support by allowing him to play his grandmother for the ninth minute of the game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Buffalo are a really special place, and I know my family is engraved here forever, me included, and I never want to leave, Allen said earlier this year. I want to play here as much as I can and give it to society and the Bill Mafia.
Allen lost his grandmother a few hours before the game, but he still played and lost 415 yards and three touchdowns for one of the biggest wins of the season – 44:34. To show their appreciation, the Beals fans started donating to the Oishei Children’s Hospital in honor of Grandma Allen. Donations exceeded $700,000 earlier this week.

Buffalo lightning workshop
Earlier this week, Norman announced the launch of his Buffalo Business Unit, an initiative to support small businesses in the Buffalo region affected by the coronavirus pandemic. To launch the initiative, Norman donated $25,000 of his own money and encouraged others in the area to do the same.
The goal of this initiative is to raise $1 million for small businesses in western New York City, but since Norman arrived in Buffalo, he has always wanted to return to his new home and community.
He wants to participate, he wants to be part of this community, he doesn’t want to live here alone, no matter how long he’s been here, and then leave and never think about Buffalo again, Micah Hyde said in a video conference earlier this week. He wants to be a part of it. He’s Jay-No, and that’s why we love him.
Throughout his career, Norman has been known as one of the best players in the league. During his time with the Carolina Panthers and in Washington, D.C., he fought with some of the top NFL receivers. But in recent years Norman believes that he has become a different kind of person and that he has found something in himself that makes him want to go back to his community and the people around him.
It’s one of the things where I know what my purpose in life is, and I know what to give to others and to people, Norman said. If I’ve lived this life and made a career in the Hall, and you think of me just for that, I’ve let you down. Unless I’ve done something to make the Hall of Fame part of my philanthropy, I don’t want to be known as a person.
One of the strangest seasons of his career.
In nine years Norman has played 115 games and started 94 games, but he has never had a more intense season than this year. He has been in and out of the team several times and has only played four games in total.
He played places 4-6 for three weeks in a row, but was unable to play places 7-9 due to a hamstring injury. When he was 10 years old. Week against the Arizona Cardinals, it tested positive for coronavirus and was placed on the reserve list/COVID-19.
He also missed the first three weeks of the season due to a hamstring problem.
It was really weird, Norman said. Probably one of the strangest, I think, for everyone, really, but for me, I’ve never had such injuries. This year is the only year I’ve been so traumatized. Then, during the covidian process, one thing led to another.
Norman returned to the field against the Los Angeles Chargers last Sunday, but only played a defensive game. Beals held the Chargers to a draw with only 17 points for their eighth victory of the season.
