They list teams that may be interested in Norris:  Angels (2 light bats at catcher), Blue Jays (back up to Martin, but already have a high payroll), Brewers (had interest before Norris came her, nothing special on roster), D-backs ("a reach"), Rays ( depends on when Ramos is back), Rox & Twins (dubious), and White Sox.  The latter would not do it for Norris alone, per the article, for Robertson, but he could be part of a package or could go on a  giveaway with nothing coming back to the Nats.

Norris wouldn’t be a significant piece in a Robertson deal, though he could be thrown in along with a few prospects to help balance out the financial component of a deal. Alternatively — and perhaps more likely — he could be obtained in a smaller deal that doesn’t include any notable big league pieces going back to the Nats.
