The Eagles announced today that they have added former Penn State wide receiver Jordan Norwood to its practice squad. Norwood replaces Danny Amendola, who was picked up by the Rams.
Norwood was with the Browns through most of the preseason and was released earlier this month. He didn't have a catch in any of the preseason games. At Penn State, the soft-spoken Norwood tallied 158 receptions for 2,015 yards and 13 TDs in four seasons. He is listed at 5-foot-11 and 171 pounds.
Yes, he's small, and, yes, he's only here to be on the scout team, but Norwood is a tough, tough kid. He took this hit from USC's Taylor Mays in last year's Rose Bowl, was knocked silly and came back later in the game.
