The Jets struggled to find a reliable kick returner last season, signed Dri Archer and brought in Marcus Sherels for a visit before he reupped with the Vikings and now they have turned their attention to Jordan Norwood. Mike Klis on 9NEWS in Denver reports Norwood will visit the Jets today.
If that name sounds vaguely familiar to you it's because it was Norwood who set a Super Bowl record for longest punt return when he returned a punt for 61 yards for the Broncos just a few months ago. Norwood returned kicks and punts for the Broncos and the Jets will look for him to fill both roles and give them some type of threat in the return game.
Norwood is also listed as a receiver and can provide depth incase of an emergency at the bottom of the receiver depth chart but in 11 games last year he caught 22 passes for 202 yards for the Broncos so it's safe to assume the Jets are interested in him for his skills as a returner to help fix last year's anemic return game.
