Report: Bears will re-sign Jordan Palmer

There’s no word on the severity of the injury suffered by Bears quarterback Jay Cutler on Sunday, but the Bears are reportedly already moving to shore up their depth chart.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Bears will bring back Jordan Palmer in the wake of Cutler’s injury. Palmer spent a couple of weeks with the team this summer after Matt Blanchard, the expected third-string quarterback, was injured.

The younger brother of Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer played in four games over three years as his brother’s backup in Cincinnati. The younger Palmer also spent time with the Jaguars last season.

Josh McCown played well in relief of Cutler on Sunday. If the injury to Cutler is a bad one, Palmer will be in position to provide relief in the coming weeks.

    Smart move, although none of it matters if the defense can’t stop anybody.

    Cutler won’t be back until December.

    nothing matters with that defense. This season is now just “something to do on Sundays”

    Shannon Sharpe knows what a hemmoroid looks like every time he looks at himself in the mirror.

    Ja’Marcus Russell must have been really, really fat when he tried out earlier this year.

  15. rushg says: Oct 20, 2013 6:18 PM

    RG3 is available if y’all want him back!!! Lmao .. Rexy that is!!!

  16. otis52gsh says: Oct 20, 2013 6:19 PM

    If Jay is out at all we are done. I mean we will still beat the Vikings and lions, but who can’t?

    Carson Palmer hasn’t played for the Bengals in 3 seasons you dumbass! And while I’m at it, redskins! Redskins! Redskins! Redskins redskins! Redskins!

    Vince Young, anyone? Just sayin…

  19. seahawkgoat says: Oct 20, 2013 7:15 PM

    Great Game

  20. bonniebengal says: Oct 20, 2013 7:19 PM

    Tim Tebow is better than Jordan Palmer.

  21. lionsdraftguy says: Oct 20, 2013 7:21 PM


    Didn’t you LOSE to the Lions??

    Thought so.

    And uh…you just lost to the Redskins.

  22. vavikingfan says: Oct 20, 2013 7:42 PM

    Christian Ponder might be available

  23. coachkilla6 says: Oct 20, 2013 7:43 PM

    Should be a good fit. I believe Palmer wears the same size skirt as Jay.

    Matt Blanchard’s looking pretty good right now! Too bad the Bears can’t have access to him til after week 10! Cutler isn’t elite by any means, but without him, the Bears are sitting ducks………

    How about luring Favre out of retirement? Is this not his dream situation? Only half a season left, including both Packers games, tons of good receiving options, a great RB, a QB-minded coach, and only half game out of first in the NFC North with only one tough matchup left (not counting the three Packers or Lions games). Wouldn’t be the craziest thing I’ve seen

    Where are all of the LOUD MOUTH Bear fans today……….Shhhhhh that ‘s right Shhhhhh …

    I can’t imagine Brian Urlacher is too sympathetic to the Bears’ problems.

  28. iowahbr says: Oct 21, 2013 12:10 PM

    Only the Jags and Giants with a combined 1 win between them have given up more points than the Bears. Get Lovie on the phone as I think we are still paying him…Looks like it might be too late to call Tim T. for a QB back-up.

  29. edwardemanuelson says: Oct 21, 2013 12:45 PM

    Calling Vince Young… Calling Vince Young…
