Eagles Release WR Norwood

Jordan Norwood's game-day experience lasted only one Sunday with the Eagles. He was released on Monday afternoon after making his NFL debut in Atllanta. Norwood joined the active roster last week when the Eagles found out that wide receiver DeSean Jackson's concussion would likely keep him out of action against the Falcons.

Norwood was then promoted to the active roster from the practice squad. He played in the 34-7 win over Atlanta, but did not catch a pass.

The Penn State product can now be claimed by any team in the league, and he is also eligible to join any of the NFL's practice squads. Norwood's release gives the Eagles an opening on the 53-man active roster, which they can fill by making cornerback Joselio Hanson eligible now that he has completed his four-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. That move has not yet been made, however.
