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.

The Falcons chose to keep three tight ends, so Palmer will sit behind Tony Gonzalez and Justin Peelle on the depth chart. The former Clemson player had been a long shot to make the team entering camp.
