Norman and his family, including his adorable daughter, arrived at the party in the ultimate Miami style—via a stunning yacht, docked right on site for the night. The highest-paid cornerback in NFL history entered the venue looking dapper as ever, decked out in a red suit from Brickell City Centre’s custom men’s boutique, STITCHED.

And we are not here to honor his accomplishments on the football field. We are here to celebrate Josh Norman—a philanthropist, and a family man. And we are so happy to be sharing this evening with his family here with us,” said Birdman.
