Kevin Norwood says AJ McCarron will win a Super Bowl

Former Alabama Crimson Tide wide receiver Kevin Norwood has high expectations for his ex-teammate AJ McCarron.

In a piece for USA Today Sports, Norwood wrote that McCarron will definitely win a Super Bowl:

The team that picks up AJ is going to be really lucky. To me, in all honesty, if not the first year or the second year or the third year or the fourth year – whatever – he’s going to win that Super Bowl. That’s how confident I am in him. He reminds me of an Eli or Peyton Manning. His mannerisms, the way he calls plays, changes to audibles and gets us in the right play and the right formation, it’s professional.

(Uh, considering the debacle of a season Eli Manning just had, I’m not sure if being compared to him is as flattering as Norwood thinks. But the guy does have two rings, so I suppose it works.)

So when McCarron is hoisting the Lombardi Trophy in a few years, remember that Norwood called it first.
