Pair of Former Miners Cannot Survive NFL Cutdown Day

Jordan Palmer did not even last a week with his new team. The Buffalo Bills cut the former UTEP quarterback last night as the team paired its roster down to the 53-man limit. Buffalo also signed veteran quarterback Kyle Orton, who spent the last few seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. Palmer did not help himself Thursday night, throwing three interceptions in the Bills’ final preseason game.

The ex-Miner signal caller spent the first three preseason games with the Chicago Bears and had been competing with Jimmy Clausen for the backup quarterback job.

Another former Miner who also did not make the final 53-man roster was Joe Banyard. The former UTEP running back had a great preseason with the Minnesota Vikings, leading the team in rushing yards this preseason. There is an unconfirmed report that the Vikings would add Banyard to their practice squad if he clears waivers.
