Jordan Shea Rashad Norwood (born September 28, 1986 in Honolulu, Hawaii) is a professional American football player, playing wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns. He was signed as a free agent out of Penn State immediately following the 2009 NFL Draft. Norwood also played basketball for one season under coach Ed DeChellis as a reserve guard. Norwood, the son of Baylor defensive coordinator and former Penn State secondary coach Brian Norwood, has been one of the leading receivers for Joe Paterno's Nittany Lions since his freshmen season.

In 2005—his freshman season—Jordan caught 32 passes for 422 yards with a 13.2 yard average. Norwood was lightly recruited out of State College High School. He received few scholarship offers and accepted Penn State's last minute offer over an offer from Bucknell to play football and basketball. It was his leadership and jumping skills on the basketball court that led coach Joe Paterno to offer him a football scholarship.

Norwood's sophomore season concluded with him making the Dean's List and being named to the Academic All-Big Ten team. He caught 45 passes for 472 yards and 2 touchdowns with a 10.5 yard average. He joined the basketball team in January, practicing regularly and appearing in four games as a reserve guard.
