Former Denver Broncos wide receiver Jordan Norwood has announced his retirement from the NFL at age 30.

"It has been a blessing to play thru 8 NFL seasons and 23 years of my life!!" Norwood wrote on Instagram.

Norwood played in 25 games for the Broncos from 2014 to 2016. He also was a member of the Cleveland Browns, Philadelphia Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Norwood was not re-signed by the Broncos in the offseason and was an unrestricted free agent.

Bronco fans will best remember Jordan Norwood's record-setting punt return in Super Bowl 50. Norwood set the record for longest punt return in Super Bowl history (61 yards) helping the Broncos to a victory over the Carolina Panthers.
