Despite being the biggest name in the Redskins' secondary, Josh Norman is Washington's "third best corner," Charley Casserly told The Sports Junkies Monday. 

"Norman is actually the third best corner right now, so I'm waiting for people to go challenge him more," the former Redskins GM said. "Fundamentals are killing him on his press technique, and being disciplined. He never was the most disclipined guy. He's very competitive, he's just not doing a good job with his hands on press."

Norman came to the Redskins after an All-Pro 2015 season with the Panthers, but this year has been overshadowed by the Quinton Dunbar.

Dunbar currently leads the team in tackles with 15, is tied with D.J. Swearinger for the team lead with four passes defended and has one interception. Norman, meanwhile, has six tackles, no passes defended or interceptions, and one fumble recovery. 

Fabian Moreau, who Casserly also ranks above Norman, has five tackles and a forced fumble. 

However, with a Monday Night Football matchup with the 3-1 Saints and their lethal offensive trio of Drew Brees, Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas looming next, Casserly sees offense as the key to winning in New Orleans. 

"This is a game where you're gonna have to score probably 30 to win," Casserly said. "But the Redskins are capable of that, if their offensive line can block."
