Josh Norman isn't the first, nor will he be the last, professional athlete to take part in a potentially risky recreational activity.

Instead of making the tackles, Washington Redskins star Josh Norman ran away from a tackle that could have been very painful while in Spain on Wednesday.

Video captured from the event shows Norman sprinting towards a bull and jumping directly over it, showing off the skills that made him a Pro Bowl cornerback in 2015.

Afterward, Norman took to social media to share his experience, including tweeting a photo from the destination bullring.

Norman proceeded to document the ludicrousness of the event on his Instagram stories, and commented on his experience at the annual festival.

I guess I'm old enough to remember when football teams didn't want their valuable assets to leap over bulls. Where else was I gonna go?" he says in one, adding, "It was fun. "It was really worth it". It was during that time that he also first mentioned that running with the bulls was on his list of potential adventure-seeking offseason endeavors.

The festival, which began on Sunday, lasts nine days and attracts people from all walks of life hoping not get gored by a raging bull.
