Norwood, 27, is a former fourth-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2014. He was traded to the Panthers at the start of last season for a 2017 conditional seventh-round pick after Carolina lost Kelvin Benjamin for the season, due to a torn ACL.
The Panthers placed him on injured reserve coming out of the preseason and waived him four days ago.
Norwood was in the third year of his four-year, $2,640,108 rookie contract and was set to make base salaries of $600,000, and $690,000 over the final two years of the agreement.
In 2015, Norwood was active for just one game but did not catch a single pass.
King, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out oof Norfolk State back in May. He was unfortunately waived coming out of the preseason but was later signed to their practice squad a day later.
Dallas elected to him loose soon after adding him to their practice squad.
During his college career, King recorded 372 tackles, 52.5 tackles for a loss, 22 sacks, four forced fumbles, five recoveries and six pass defenses
