Josh Norman will shadow Odell Beckham Jr. in Sunday's game

— -- Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman will follow New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. in Sunday's game at MetLife Stadium, a Redskins source told ESPN's Britt McHenry on Wednesday.

Norman will go "anywhere Odell goes ... except for slot," the source said.

It's a decision the coaching staff had wanted to make sooner, but the staff didn't want to upset Bashaud Breeland. The corner wasn't happy with the decision to assign Norman to the No. 1 receiver the last two weeks, so they backed off.

However, the staff now has decided to stick with their original game plan of Norman always shadowing the top wideout. The source added: "We're going to let him earn the 75 million."

Norman and Beckham have some history. In their matchup in Week 14 of last season, a frustrated Beckham was flagged three times for unnecessary roughness for tussles with Norman, ultimately earning a one-game suspension. Norman also was given an unnecessary roughness penalty in the game. Beckham finished with six receptions for 76 yards and a touchdown.

The Panthers and Giants also face each other in Week 17 this season.
