The Seahawks have traded receiver Kevin Norwood to the Carolina Panthers on Monday, receiving an undisclosed conditional 2017 draft pick in return.
Norwood, a fourth-round pick out of Alabama last season, appeared in nine games last season, starting two. He finished his rookie season with 9 catches for 102 yards. Norwood enjoyed a strong showing in offseason workouts as a rookie, but a foot injury kept him out for most of training camp, and while he still earned a spot on the 53-man roster, he struggled to find a role in the offense until late in the season.
In this year's camp, receiver has been one of the deepest position groups on the roster, as is evident in the decision to make this trade, which comes a day ahead of the deadline to reduce rosters to 75 players. Along with the moves the Seahawks announced earlier Monday, the Seahawks roster is now at 75 following this trade.
