Where there is a lot of smoke, there is usually fire. One report does not a signing make, but three and four reports usually indicate something is pending. Joe Pelusi of 590 the Fan radio in STL was the first to go out on a limb for Norwood:
Jerious Norwood is in St. Louis tonight. Dining at Ruth Chris. Sources claim will be signing tomorrow
Then silence until this morning.
Atl rb norwood in house!
Adam Caplan – NFL reporter and national radio host
I’m expecting Norwood to sign with STL
Jurious [sic] Norwood is in town Rams front office is working to get a deal done.
Running back Norwood stood at practice and watched while the Rams had a spirited walk through session this morning
Norwood is not the final piece of the puzzle for the Rams running back depth, but would be a perfect compliment to Jackson and a solid #2 like Jason Snelling or Jerome Harrison. Norwood is very familiar with Rams RB coach Syvester Croom, having played for him in college and the Rams will know how to best use Norwood in limited snaps to make the biggest impact.
