Jordan Norwood tweeted the news to Broncos Country - he's staying in Denver. With the role he played in helping the organization win its third Lombardi Trophy, it's a great move to re-sign him.
Blessed to be able to suit up for the @Broncos again this fall and keep my family here in Denver! #unitedinorange pic.twitter.com/zVnogcnftw— Jordan Norwood (@JordaNorwood) March 24, 2016
The receiver and return specialist returns to the Broncos on a one-year deal, according to The Denver Post's Nicki Jhabvla. Details of the contract have yet to be released.
This makes the last month and a half even sweeter for Norwood.
His 61-yard punt return in Super Bowl 50 - nearly for a touchdown - was the longest in Super Bowl history. It was a key play in Denver's eventual win. In fact, it was so sweet, let's watch it again.
Longest punt return is Superbowl history, Jordan Norwood... all because the #Panthers didn't want to tackle him - pic.twitter.com/BsTTyfHnT6— Dov Kleiman (@NFL_DovKleiman) February 8, 2016
This move keeps needed depth at the receiver position for the Broncos, but also someone who proved vital in special teams when given the chance. With the offseason to work and improve, Norwood could become a weapon for Denver in that regard.
Plus, this allows him to keep his family in the Mile High City.
There was no word if Oreos were part of the deal to bring him back, given he loves the sandwich cookie so much.
In all seriousness, it's a great move by the Broncos to bring Norwood back.
