Bills released QB Jordan Palmer.

He threw three interceptions in the preseason finale.

Bills signed QB Jordan Palmer.

Palmer isn't a monster upgrade on Thad Lewis or Jeff Tuel as E.J. Manuel's backup, but Palmer knows football and is a good teacher. As a free agent over the winter and spring, he worked with Blake Bortles, among others, in the lead up to the draft. Palmer would be a good sounding board for Manuel. Palmer was beaten out by Jimmy Clausen for the No. 2 job in Chicago this summer.

Bears released QB Jordan Palmer.

Jimmy Clausen has officially won Chicago's backup quarterback job, which unofficially puts him on the fantasy radar under QB Whisperer Marc Trestman. If the Bears keep three quarterbacks this season, they'll be Jay Cutler, Clausen, and rookie David Fales. They could also keep two. Palmer figures to stay on Trestman's speed dial, however. The two are tight and he knows the system.

Coach Marc Trestman confirmed Jordan Palmer will enter camp as the Bears' No. 2 quarterback.

The Bears' backup quarterback position is more notable than other backup QB jobs because of Chicago's weaponry, Jay Cutler's injury history, and Trestman's history of maximizing signal-caller play. Palmer will open camp as the No. 2, but will be pushed hard by Jimmy Clausen. The loser of that battle will likely lose his roster spot, with rookie David Fales sticking around as the No. 3.

Bears GM Phil Emery reiterated that he believes Jordan Palmer can be the team's No. 2 quarterback.

"Absolutely," Emery said. "I told him that the other day -- looking forward to your contributions and we're counting on you." Emery added that he doesn't expect to use a late-round pick on a developmental quarterback. Palmer only has to hold off Jerrod Johnson for backup duties behind Jay Cutler. He hasn't appeared in a regular season game since 2010, but spent last year in Chicago and knows Marc Trestman's system. Even if the Bears don't draft a QB, a free-agent signing can't be ruled out. Cutler has missed 12 games the last three seasons.

Bears GM Phil Emery said he was comfortable with QB Jordan Palmer as Jay Cutler's backup but would seriously look at adding a quarterback in the draft.

Palmer spent all of last season in quarterback whisperer Marc Trestman's system, but the Bears could afford to improve. They have already brought in several veteran quarterbacks for workouts this offseason and are likely to bring in more. A late-round pick on a developmental quarterback could also make sense.

Bears re-signed QB Jordan Palmer to a one-year contract.

Carson's younger brother hasn't appeared in a regular season NFL game since 2010 with the Bengals. The 30-year-old did spend all of last year in Marc Trestman's system, and will be a candidate to be Jay Cutler's primary 2014 backup if Josh McCown bolts in free agency. Palmer has a strong but erratic arm.
Sun, Mar 9, 2014 09:54:00 PM

Free agent QB Jordan Palmer is the quarterback coach at EXOS, a pre-draft training center, and has been working with UCF's Blake Bortles and others six days a week.

Bortles is the most notable name, but also in attendance are Wyoming's Brett Smith and Washington's Keith Price. Palmer has also worked with San Jose State's David Fales. Palmer, who was with the Bears the final two months of last season, designed a playbook and is putting in six-hour days with the prospects. It sounds like the soon-to-be 30-year-old may have a future in coaching.
Sun, Feb 16, 2014 10:24:00 AM

Bears agreed to terms with QB Jordan Palmer.

Carson's younger, wilder brother was with the Bears in training camp. Chicago is signing him up to back up Josh McCown with Jay Cutler (groin) potentially staring at an extended absence. Cutler will have an MRI on Monday.
Sun, Oct 20, 2013 06:01:00 PM

Bears released QB Jordan Palmer and S Tom Nelson, waived WR Josh Lenz.

A camp body, Palmer made it two weeks on the roster. He isn't practice-squad eligible. Already 29, time is running out for Carson's little brother. Lenz is an undrafted free agent out of Iowa State. He has 4.37 wheels.
Fri, Aug 30, 2013 09:51:00 AM

Bears signed QB Jordan Palmer, formerly of the Jaguars.

29-year-old Jordan is the younger brother of Carson Palmer. A 2007 sixth-round pick out of UTEP, Palmer has plenty of arm strength but has always thrown with extremely erratic accuracy. He'll be a camp arm until September cuts.
Fri, Aug 16, 2013 02:34:00 PM

Jaguars signed QB Jordan Palmer.

Palmer has been on the street since getting waived at final cuts by the Jags. Carson's brother is back now thanks to Blaine Gabbert's season-ending forearm and shoulder injuries. He'll caddy for Chad Henne.
Wed, Nov 21, 2012 12:04:00 PM

Jaguars waived or released QB Jordan Palmer, TE Colin Cloherty, RB Richard Murphy, CB Trumaine McBride, DE Odrick Ray, OT Will Robinson, OT Lee Barbiasz, DB Rod Issac and LB J.K. Schaffer.

Palmer's release leaves the Jags with only Chad Henne behind second-year starter Blaine Gabbert. Carson's brother, Palmer has attempted just 15 career passes since entering the league as a sixth-round pick in 2007.
Fri, Aug 31, 2012 02:39:00 PM

Jaguars signed QB Jordan Palmer, formerly of the Bengals.

Palmer — Carson's brother — was invited to the Jaguars' rookie minicamp on a tryout basis, but showed enough to earn a contract. A 2007 sixth-round pick, Palmer has attempted only 15 career passes, 12 of which came in 2008. He'll compete for the Jaguars' third-string job.
