Eagles add Penn State's Norwood to practice squad

The Philadelphia Eagles signed WR Jordan Norwood to the practice squad to replace Danny Amendola, who was signed by the St. Louis Rams yesterday.

Norwood (5-11, 179) was originally signed as a rookie free agent by the Cleveland Browns this past spring and saw action in three preseason games before being released as part of the Browns final roster cut down on September 5.

The 22-year-old Norwood finished his collegiate career at Penn State with 158 receptions for 2,015 yards and 13 touchdowns. As a senior, he caught 41 passes for 637 yards and six scores. Norwood was born in Honolulu, HI, and starred at State College (PA) High School.
