In an interview with “The Sports ReKap,” the host Nick Kapetan asked undrafted Bears rookie Levi Norwood a “would you rather” question.

Would you rather spend a month on a desert island by yourself or have all that hair shaved off?

Norwood, who supports a rather large afro, said the desert island.

I put a lot of work into it. A lot of years, so I can’t cut it off that easy.

But the undrafted receiver out of Baylor would give up his hair for a spot on the Bears roster. He said his skill set fits well in offensive coordinator Adam Gase’s offense.

I haven’t questioned once while I’ve been out here my decision on coming here. I’m excited to have a chance to keep on playing for the Bears.

The former Baylor Bears receiver caught 35 balls for 319 yards and two touchdowns last season. His numbers didn’t prove it, but Norwood describes his skills set as consistent.

Consistently catching the ball and consistently being in the right place. Whenever there was a situation where we needed to rely on someone to get a first down, often time it was me, [Bryce Petty] was throwing to, so consistently reliable.

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound receiver, who was Baylor’s primary punt and kick returner, said he can help the Bears in special teams, as well.

I was able to do things in special teams, whether it’s returning, running down on punts or kickoffs.

The Bears currently have eight receivers on their depth chart, but John Fox knows about Norwood because his brother Jordan played for Fox in Denver last season.
