DAVIE, Fla. – The Miami Dolphins are reportedly in the running to pay millions and millions of dollars to newly-minted free agent cornerback Josh Norman.

Norman became free to sell his wares to the entire NFL yesterday after the Carolina Panthers pulled their franchise tag from the 2015 NFL All-Pro defensive back.

The Panthers had reportedly offered well less than the $15-16 million a year that Norman was seeking in a new deal.

ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted Thursday that the Dolphins, along with the 49ers, Redskins, Steelers and many others are interested in signing Norman.

However, James Walker of ESPN.com wrote that while the Dolphins have about $19.5 million of cap room, that might not be enough to bring Norman to South Florida.

Norman was a big part of the Panthers Super Bowl run last season with four interceptions, two returned from touchdowns.
