Norwood explained that he really never loved the game of football and finally realized he “didn’t have to keep acting like I loved the game of football.”
Norwood, 30, originally signed on with the Browns as an undrafted free agent out of back in 2009. However, he lasted just a few months in Cleveland before he was cut and later signed to the Eagles’ practice squad.
After brief stints with the Browns and Buccaneers, the Broncos signed him to a future/reserve deal after the 2013 season and he was in Denver ever since.
For his career, Norwood caught 79 passes for 844 yards receiving and two touchdowns over the course of 42 games. He also contributed 290 punt return yards and another 94 kick return yards.
