Report: Bears to re-sign Jordan Palmer after Jay Cutler injury
With quarterback Jay Cutler injured, the Bears will add Jordan Palmer to backup Josh McCown.
Jordan Palmer has a new team and it's the same as his old team: the Chicago Bears. Palmer is set to re-sign with Chicago this week, according to ESPN.com. Bears starting quarterback Jay Cutler went down with a groin injury in the first half of Chicago's 45-41 loss to Washington and never returned to the game.
The Bears originally signed Palmer in mid-August after third-string quarterback Matt Blanchard broke his hand. Chicago ended up deciding to only carry two quarterbacks though and Palmer was cut on Aug. 31.
In his only extended preseason appearance, Palmer went 11 of 17 for 111 yards and a touchdown in an 18-16 Bears loss to the Browns.
Palmer's been in and out of the league since being drafted in the sixth round by the Redskins in 2007. The 29-year-old didn't latch on with Washington, but he did join his brother Carson in Cincinnati for three seasons (2008-2010). Palmer was out of football in 2011 before spending last season with the Jaguars.
