Levi was signed by the Lions as a free agent in January 2017.
2015-2016: Levi was an undrafted free agent signing of the Chicago Bears in 2015 and attended training camp with the club before being released prior to the regular season. Following a workout with the Denver Broncos later that December, he eventually signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers in February 2016 and was a late release in training camp.
2011-2014: Levi enjoyed a very productive four-year, 49-game career at Baylor University during the school’s most successful run of wins and bowl appearances ever. A talented receiver and extremely dangerous returner, he recorded 1,626 yards on 128 receptions with 11 majors, a career that included at least one reception in 37-straight games. A threat to score each time he touched the ball, Levi was an All-Big 12 honorable mention as kick and punt returner in both 2013 and 2014 and was also selected as an All-Big 12 receiver and all-purpose selection as junior in 2013. He departed Baylor ranked sixth in program history in career punt returns (64) and eighth in punt return yards (559).
Levi makes his home in Pennsylvania where he works as a freelance photographer when he’s not preparing for football season. He was a Public Relations major during his time at Baylor and also spent a season with the school’s basketball team. Third among four boys in the Norwood family, his eldest brother Gabe plays pro basketball in the Philippines while his older brother Jordan plays receiver for the Denver Broncos. Levi’s dad Brian was also a one-time Calgary Stampeder. Winning back-to-back Big 12 championships is among his fondest football memories and notes travelling among his many interests outside of the game.
