The Titans announced the signing of quarterback Jordan Palmer on Monday, after the team placed Jake Locker on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, per the team's official website.
Quarterback Jordan Palmer and veteran punter Brian Moorman are the two most significant cuts announced by the Bills on Friday.
Palmer was let go three days after his signing. He had been cut by Chicago on Tuesday. He has only played in five regular season games in five years. Moorman has been booting for the Bills as the No. 1 punter 2001, aside from one season with Dallas.
The other cuts are linebacker Xavius Boyd, defensive tackle Landon Cohen, tight end Dominique Jones, cornerbacks Kamaal McIlwain and Sam Miller, fullback Evan Rodriguez, wide receiver Naaman Roosevelt and center Jared Wheeler.
As expected, the Bills signed quarterback Jordan Palmer, who was released by the Bears over the weekend.
The Bills are expected to sign quarterback Jordan Palmer, ESPN reports. Palmer was released by the Bears after losing the backup quarterback battle to Jimmy Claussen.
The Bears will release quarterback Jordan Palmer, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter on Sunday. Palmer lost the backup job to Jimmy Clausen in the preseason. He passed for 225 yards while completing 21 of 30 attempts, with one touchdown and one interception.
Bears quarterback Jordan Palmer will be the first signal caller off the bench to relieve starter Jay Cutler in Friday's preseason game against the Seahawks, ESPNChicago.com reports. Jimmy Clausen served as the No. 2 QB in the last preseason game.
"Jay will work certainly into the second quarter and we'll make a decision during the second quarter what we're going to do with him," Trestman said. "That will be dependent on a number of different things. And then after that we'll have Jordan, so expect Jordan to play the third quarter and Jimmy to play the fourth. We'll continue to rotate these guys around. We've got another week after this one and that's the way we'll operate this week."
Palmer and Claussen are batting to win the primary backup spot behind Cutler.
Bears coach Marc Trestman said quarterback Jimmy Clausen will relieve Jay Cutler in Thursday's preseason game against the Jaguars, with Jordan Palmer playing third. Clausen and Palmer are fighting for the backup job.
Clausen hit 7 of 13 throws for 150 yards and two touchdowns in the preseason opener, while Palmer went 8 for 11 for 104 yards with one touchdown and one interception.
Jimmy Clausen might have gotten the jump on incumbent Jordan Palmer in the battle for the backup Bears quarterback job behind Jay Cutler. The former is working with the second-team Saturday in practice, per ESPN.
Injuries have prevented Clausen from throwing an NFL pass since 2010 with Carolina. It remains to be seen if he can hang on to the backup spot with Chicago.
The Bears signed Jimmy Clausen back in early June to compete for the backup quarterback job behind Jay Cutler. ESPN believes that Clausen has gained enough ground on incumbent backup Jordan Palmer to be penciled in for the part. Both will compete for one spot in camp this summer as rookie David Fales figures to make the roster as a long-term developmental project.
Bears quarterback Jordan Palmer is dealing with a shoulder injury, reports ESPN.
The injury is not considered serious. Palmer is expected to be No. 2 on the depth chart behind Jay Cutler.
With Josh McCown in Tampa Bay, Jordan Palmer likely will enter the season as the Bears' No. 2 quarterback behind Jay Cutler. Jerrod Johnson is the only other QB on the roster.
"I feel very good about [Palmer],” coach Marc Trestman told the Chicago Sun-Times. "I feel good about his preparation. His work ethic is very similar to Josh’s. He spends a lot of time here. He’s taken over the tradition now of getting these new guys ready.
"At this point, you’d have to feel good about Palmer’s experience. He doesn’t have a lot of hits on him right now. He’s very much engaged in the offense."
Palmer has thrown 15 career passes. The paper said Chicago might add a quarterback before camp, but it could be an undrafted free agent.
The Bears lost backup quarterback Josh McCown to the Buccaneers, but coach Marc Trestman said he gives Jordan Palmer "a lot of credit" for how he played in the 2013 preseason.
“He literally learned the offense on his own because we didn’t have time to work daily with him." Trestman told the Chicago Tribune. "He worked. He worked overtime and he learned the offense and came in and played admirably in the preseason. He moved the football team and was very sufficient.
“He’s got a lot of experience and not a lot of wear and tear. He’s been around a long time. Obviously, we’re going to have another one in there and see how that goes over the next couple of months.”
General manager Phil Emery expects to sign a free agent to compete with Palmer for the backup job.
The Bears announced Sunday night that defensive tackle Nate Collins and quarterback Jordan Palmer will be back with the team in 2014, reports the Chicago Tribune. Both have signed one-year deals.
Collins, 26, played in five games for the Bears last season, credited by team stats with 13 tackles and a sack before suffering a season-ending ACL tear in a Week 5 home loss to the Saints.
Palmer spent training camp with the Bears in 2013, was released before the start of the regular season but then rejoined the club in late-October after starting quarterback Jay Cutler tore a groin muscle. Palmer remained on the roster through season’s end but did not see action in any of the team’s final nine games.
He could be No. 2 behind Cutler this season if Josh McCown leaves as a free agent.
