Broncos, Jordan Norwood Agree To One Year Deal
The Denver Broncos and slot reciever Jordan Norwood have agreed on a one year deal. The Super Bowl record holder will be returning to Denver in 2016.
Not sure if it ended up taking a lifetime supply of Oreos to do so, but Jordan Norwood is returning to Denver.
Mike Klis has reported that the Broncos and Jordan Norwood have agreed on a one year deal. As of this writing of this article, the deals have not been disclosed. But it provides a solid boost to the Broncos receiving corps and a potential special teams player. Norwood even confirmed that the deal was done in Denver.
While Norwood was not known for his receiving stats with the Broncos in 2015, he made some flashes in the return game. A punt return for a touchdown against the Steelers in Week 15 that was later called back was followed by a Super Bowl record.
Norwood currently holds the record for the longest punt return in Super Bowl history when he weaved his way through for 61 yards. While they play did not result in a touchdown, it did propel the Broncos to their Super Bowl win against the Carolina Panthers.
This puts the Broncos in a great position with their receiving corps that includes players like Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, Cody Latimer, Bennie Fowler, and Jordan Taylor. This could be an interesting battle to watch in training camp.

For me, Norwood was the one player that I had hoped that the Broncos would resign. I believe he can really help out on special teams. And he did a pretty solid job as the slot receiver.
This also helps the Broncos by seeing what he can do with the one year deal. It shows that they are confident in what he can bring to the team, but being careful about it too.
He may not be the tallest guy on the team, but he certainly has the skill and strength to do his job well. Now, let us see if he can get that lifetime supply of Oreo’s in that contract. He sure can afford a few more of them now.
