Jets Free Agency Tracker: Jordan Norwood to Visit

New, comments
Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

Free agent Jordan Norwood is set to visit the Jets.

It does not feel likely the Jets are bringing in Norwood for what he can do as a receiver. He has never caught more than 23 passes in a single season. Chan Gailey also did not have much use for a conventional slot receiver in Jeremy Kerley last year. He opted for bigger options like Eric Decker and Quincy Enunwa in the middle of the field who could help as run blockers.

Perhaps the Jets are looking at him to spark some life in the return game. Norwood does not have a ton of experience as a returner. He only has 10 career regular season punt returns and 2 kickoff returns. As Mike Klis notes in his tweet, however, Norwood did set a Super Bowl record with his 61 yard punt return against the Panthers.
