By Jaboner Jackson 130 pm | Today the Palmer Era officially ended again when the Cincinnati Bengals cut backup quarterback Jordan Palmer. Our man crush on Carson Palmer (aka Heisman Palmer) is well documented. Even though we have no such man crush on Carson’s little brother--who is unofficially known as Little Heisman Palmer around the FOOTBALLPHDS offices--any Palmer family news is major news for us.
Jordan Palmer has played three seasons with the Bengals, during which time he has thrown a total of 15 passes. In 2010, he went an amazing 3-for-3 for an impressive 100% completion rate. Unfortunately, he also was sacked twice and only amassed 18 total yards of offense. Jordan has exhibited remarkable poise when holding the clipboard on the sidelines during practices.
Prior to the Bengals, Palmer was on the practice squads for the Washington Redskins, at which time he took the attached photograph.
Jordan played his college football at UTEP, where he won the 2006 GMAC Bowl. In his junior season, he amassed an impressive 3,503 yards.
We expect Jordan to focus on his business dealings in Orange County rather than resuming a career in professional football. There is no doubt he has a powerful handshake after holding that clipboard for all these years.
If this Ode is not enough for all the Jordan Palmer fans out there (we know there must be at least one such fan), please feel free to read some of our archives regarding Jordan Palmer and his older, stud-lier brother, the incomparable Carson Palmer.
