Seahawks waived TE Michael Palmer.

DT Martin Parker was signed in a corresponding move. A blocking tight end, Palmer made it just two weeks in Seattle after being waived by the Giants in May. Palmer appeared in 43 games for the Falcons from 2010-12, but isn't looking terribly likely to set foot on an NFL field this season.

Falcons TE Michael Palmer (shoulder) will not play in Week 4.

Falcons re-signed exclusive rights free agent TE Michael Palmer and RB Antone Smith.

Michael Palmer caught two passes for 11 yards, including his first career touchdown in the team's Week 9 win over Tampa Bay.

A long shot to make the team out of training camp, the undrafted rookie from Clemson hauled in a five yard laser from Matt Ryan to further increase the Falcons' lead. It's a nice story, but it would take a Tony Gonzalez injury to register Palmer on the fantasy radar.
