Penn State's Norwood working out for Eagles; Amendola signs with Rams

Jordan Norwood tweeted today that he's off to Philadelphia and he could soon be a member of the Eagles' practice squad.

The exact tweet from the former Penn State receiver: To Philadelphia for me!!! Praising God for the opportunity. We shall see how it goes.

The reason the Eagles have a vacancy on the practice squad is because receiver Danny Amendola has signed with the St. Louis Rams. Amendola had an impressive preseason with the Eagles, but there was no room for him on the 53-man roster. Amendola may get a chance to be the Rams' top return man. 

Norwood, released by Cleveland just before the start of the season, in indeed coming to Philadelphia, but only a workout in front of team officials tonight is guaranteed.

The 5-foot-7, 171-pound receiver caught 41 passes for 637 yards and six touchdowns last year for the Nittany Lions. The Browns invited him to training camp as an undrafted free agent.
