Former Broncos WR Jordan Norwood announced his retirement after eight seasons in the NFL.
An undrafted free agent out of Penn State, Norwood bounced around the league before landing with the Broncos in 2015. He carved out a role as a returner in Denver and set an NFL record with a 61-yard punt return in the Broncos' Super Bowl victory. He finishes his career with 79 catches for 844 yards and two touchdowns. Mon, Sep 11, 2017 11:37:00 AM

Jordan Norwood caught 5-of-7 targets for 39 yards in the Broncos' Week 6 loss to the Chargers.

Norwood has emerged as the Broncos' No. 3 receiver, but has only 12 catches in six games. Tonight's "outburst" was a product of Trevor Siemian struggling to get the ball down the field, and checking it down instead. Norwood isn't on the PPR league radar.
Fri, Oct 14, 2016 12:51:00 AM

Broncos re-signed WR Jordan Norwood to a one-year contract.

Norwood visited the Lions late last week, but will stay in Denver after turning in a 22-207-0 receiving line last season. Norwood is a situational slot receiver with some return value. He'll turn 30 years old this September.
Wed, Mar 23, 2016 09:10:00 PM

Free agent WR Jordan Norwood is visiting the Lions on Friday.

The Lions are in the market for a No. 3 receiver behind Marvin Jones and Golden Tate. Norwood is more a slot receiver-only at his 5'11/180 size. He caught 22 balls in Denver last season and turns 30 in September.
Fri, Mar 18, 2016 10:09:00 AM

Free agent WR Jordan Norwood will visit the Jets on Thursday.

A similar player to outgoing Jeremy Kerley, Norwood is a slot receiver with a small amount of return value. Norwood finished last season with 22 catches.
Thu, Mar 17, 2016 12:48:00 AM

Broncos declared WR Jordan Norwood, QB Peyton Manning, QB Christian Ponder, S T.J. Ward, OL Sam Brenner, DT Sylvester Williams, and OLB DeMarcus Ware inactive for Week 13 against the Chargers.

Trevor Siemian will back up Brock Osweiler at quarterback.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 02:37:00 PM

Jordan Norwood (hamstring) is questionable for Week 8 against the Packers.

Norwood injured his hamstring in Friday's practice. Cody Latimer or Andre Caldwell will replace him in three-wide sets if he doesn't play, with Emmanuel Sanders likely moving inside to the slot.
Fri, Oct 30, 2015 06:37:00 PM

Jordan Norwood caught three passes for 27 yards in Week 3 against the Lions.

Norwood managed a 17-yard catch on a broken third-down play in the second half. He's been playing in three-wide sets, but remains a non-factor.
Mon, Sep 28, 2015 02:08:00 AM

Jordan Norwood caught 3-of-5 targets for 14 yards in Denver's Week 2 win over the Chiefs.

Norwood has now run as Denver's No. 3 wideout in back-to-back games, but has just five catches for 39 yards to show for it. He couldn't make a difficult catch on what could have been a 19-yard touchdown late in the third quarter. Norwood has blown by Cody Latimer on the depth chart, but has no fantasy value.
Fri, Sep 18, 2015 12:57:00 AM

Jordan Norwood caught 2-of-5 targets for 25 yards Week 1 against the Ravens.

Norwood worked as the primary slot receiver, which is something ESPN's Jeff Legwold expects to continue. Norwood has jumped Cody Latimer on the depth chart and could be useful in extremely deep PPR formats. Latimer can be dropped in redraft leagues.

Broncos WR Jordan Norwood has seven catches for 67 yards this preseason.

Norwood played extensively with the Peyton Manning group in Denver's third preseason game, replacing Emmanuel Sanders (hamstring) at slot receiver. When the Broncos' receiver crew is fully healthy, Sanders will man the inside in three-wide sets, with Demaryius Thomas and Cody Latimer aligning on the perimeter. Norwood is a crafty slot man, but he's low on talent as a 29-year-old former UDFA out of Penn State. He's just completing for a roster spot in Denver. Norwood missed all of 2014 with a torn ACL.
Mon, Aug 31, 2015 03:45:00 PM

Broncos signed WR Jordan Norwood, LB L.J. Fort, S Eric Hagg, OL Mike Farrell, and OL Ryan Miller to reserve/future contracts.

Norwood caught 36 passes for 405 yards and one touchdown in 16 games with the Browns from 2011-2012. Fort, Hagg, and Miller all also played for the Browns in 2012. Ex-Cleveland GM Tom Heckert is currently in Denver's front office.
Tue, Dec 31, 2013 02:51:00 PM

Bucs agreed to terms with WR Jordan Norwood, formerly of the Browns.

DE Aaron Morgan was waived in a corresponding move. A fifth-year undrafted free agent, Norwood spent the past two years with the Browns. He was waived on Monday. He's likely just a camp body, but the Bucs don't have a set slot receiver. Norwood plays exclusively in the slot.
Wed, Aug 28, 2013 02:56:00 PM

Browns waived WR Jordan Norwood.

Norwood is a slot receiver only, and the Browns are all set there with Davone Bess. Norwood could still help a team with a specific need at his position.
Mon, Aug 26, 2013 12:44:00 PM

ESPN Cleveland considers WR Jordan Norwood on the roster bubble.

Norwood is a carryover from former GM Tom Heckert and will need a strong preseason to avoid being cut. Josh Cooper, Ryan Miller, and Owen Marecic are also in danger of losing their roster spots.
