Former Miner Palmer Hopes to Catch on in Jacksonville

Former UTEP quarterback Jordan Palmer hopes the third time is the charm when it comes to sticking on an NFL roster.  Palmer played well enough in May’s rookie minicamp to earn an invite to the Jacksonville Jaguars training camp.

Palmer joins second year quarterback Blaine Gabbert and former Dolphins’ starter Chad Henne on Jacksonville’s roster.  Gabbert is the incumbent starter, but he didn’t play well enough in his rookie season to convince anyone he will be a long term starter in the NFL.  Palmer is clearly a long shot to be a starter or backup, but he remains hopeful that he can be on the opening day roster.

What Palmer has going for him is five years of NFL experience and a relationship with the Jaguars’ offensive coordinator.  Bob Bratkowski was with Palmer during his three-year stint with Cincinnati, and Bratkowski is currently Jacksonville’s offensive coordinator.

Originally drafted by Washington in the sixth round of the 2007 NFL draft, Palmer was cut by the Redskins that preseason.  He backed up his brother Carson in Cincinnati from 2008-2010.
