Jordan Palmer Will Reportedly Sign With The Buffalo Bills

Former Bears quarterback Jordan Palmer is reportedly signing with the Buffalo Bills and will attempt to win their backup QB role.

In a somewhat surprising move, the Bears released Palmer on Sunday after three solid preseason performances against Philly, Jacksonville and Seattle where he had an efficient quarterback rating of 70 percent, and completed 21 of 30 passes with no interceptions and a touchdown.  Palmer, who is entering his eighth NFL season, has played for four NFL teams. He was drafted by Washington in the sixth round of the 2007 NFL Draft but never played a game there.

Palmer who is 30 has never been a starter in the NFL backing up his brother Carson Palmer is Cincinnati for a while before playing brief stints with Jacksonville and Chicago.  The way Palmer has been playing he should be able to win the Bills backup QB job.   Bills coach Doug Marrone has recently expressed displeasure with the other possible backups Jeff Tuel and Thad Lewis, making this an ideal situation for Palmer who is known to coach and mentor quarterbacks.

Palmer would be able to mentor Bills young signal caller EJ Manuel and ironically enough Buffalo opens the season on September 7 at Chicago.
