Jordan Palmer’s UFL tour ends quickly

Several weeks ago, Jordan Palmer was battling for a spot on the Bengals’ depth chart, with Dan LeFevour.  (In the end, neither made it.)  Jordan’s big brother, Carson, reportedly believed that the Bengals were toying with Jordan, squatting on his rights and not giving him a chance to earn a job with another NFL team.

In the end, Jordan Palmer didn’t even have enough time to earn a job with another UFL team.

On the same day that the UFL issued a press release announcing the rosters for the launch of the 2011 season — which included Jordan Palmer as a member of the Sacramento Mountain Lions — a separate release listed Jordan Palmer as one of the men who had been removed from the Mountain Lions’ active roster.

So who’s really toying with Jordan Palmer?

Other recognizable names on UFL rosters entering the UFL season (unless they also are released before the UFL season starts) include, in Las Vegas, quarterback Brian Brohm (who was the Andrew Luck of the 2007 college football preseason), running back Marcel Shipp, and receiver Eddie Drummond.  In Omaha, the roster includes a pair of Heisman Trophy winners in quarterbacks Troy Smith and Eric Crouch, along with quarterback Jeremiah Masoli, running backs Maurice Clarett, Noel Devine, and Shaud Williams, receiver Chad Jackson, defensive tackle Dusty Dvoracek, linebacker Angelo Crowell, and defensive back Ricardo Colclough.  In Sacramento, the roster has running back John David Washington (Denzel’s son), linebacker Dontarrious Thomas, and defensive back Will Poole.  Finally, the Virginia Destroyers include quarterback Mike McMahon, running backs Dominic Rhodes and Adrian Peterson (not that one), and defensive back Keiwan Ratliff.

    Looks like the UFL has a nice list of has beens and also rans.

    The funny thing is clowns like you could never even dream about being good enough to play in any organized league, let alone the UFL. Fantasy football is popular because that’s what football is for guys like you. A fantasy.

  2. You know, Mike Brown is an awful football guy but it just goes to show he did Carson and Jordan a huge favor (at the expense of the football team) by keeping him on the roster. He had absolutely no business being a player in the NFL.

  3. The only guy I haven’t heard of out of all this UFL players is Masoli.

    I think Jordan Palmer will sign with someone as a FA next year and get one last shot with an NFL team. He was at a disadvantage to make a roster with so little time. I can’t believe Mike Brown jerked Jordan around like that. When you run your team that way, players who have a choice will never choose Cincinnati as their FA destination.

  4. Omaha is straight stacked! …for a UFL squad.

    Jordan Palmer wasn’t worthy of a roster spot, even on my Bengals, and for Carson to say that Mikey was toying with him was a bit of a stretch. I’d say letting the guy collect a paycheck period was gracious enough wouldn’t you Carson?

    Jordan’s claim to fame now (and a paycheck) will be his iPhone app that rates movies for the best time to get up and pee, and the one he built for Ocho Stinko.

    I am guessing you maxed out at a Juco which be better than than most regular fans…

    I still know a scrub when I see one so don’t hate Mr. Southeastern Corncob College Co-Special Teams MVP…

  6. keep beating the imaginary dead horse. brown didn’t string jordan along. notice how many nfl teams invited jordan to work out for them once jordan was released? zero. that’s right, zero.

    jordan was on the roster as a favor to his brother, that is all. get over it.

  7. So who’s really toying with Jordan Palmer ?

    Himself.

    He’s just dilusional that he is anywhere close to being a good quarterback……..

    He ought to be thankful that the Redskins and Bengals gave him an NFL job for a few years.

  8. I already said there was a reason m. brown cut you…not cause he’s messing with Carson, you just wasn’t that good! Remove this article, we’ve moved on! GO A.D.!
