Bengals release Carson's brother, QB Jordan Palmer wire reports

CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Bengals have waived quarterback Jordan Palmer, who came to training camp hoping to compete for a job but didn't get much of a chance.

Palmer was the backup quarterback last season to brother Carson Palmer, who has decided to retire rather than play another season for the Bengals. Jordan Palmer led workouts with Cincinnati's offense during the NFL lockout and tutored rookie quarterback Andy Dalton.

The Bengals decided to make Dalton the starter and signed veteran Bruce Gradkowski, an indication they didn't plan to keep Palmer. Dalton and Gradkowski ran most of the plays during training camp practices and preseason games.
