When veteran quarterback Jordan Palmer was released by the Chicago Bears on Sunday, Palmer sent out a barrage of tweets that were supportive of the Bears organization.
In one tweet, Palmer predicted that the Bears would be making it to Super Bowl and Jay Cutler will be a MVP quarterback.
In another tweet, Palmer suggested that he will remain a Bear for life while always wearing navy and orange.
Imagine the surprise of the Bears when they learned on Monday that Palmer signed a contract with the Buffalo Bills. The Bills being the team that the Bears open their season against on September 7.
Cutler spoke about Palmer’s signing on Tuesday and admitted that it was not an ideal outcome.
“It’s not exactly what you want,” Cutler said. “He can give them things I’m sure. He knows snap counts, some of the stuff we do with our checks, what plays we like. But they still have to defend it. So we won’t change much if anything, maybe a few tweaks here and there. But we’ll just have to go play football and see how it goes.” -Jay Cutler, ESPN Chicago
The Bills are a mess.
Palmer or no Palmer, the Bills will struggle in trying to contain Cutler and a Bears offense that includes wide receivers Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, running back Matt Forte, and tight end Martellus Bennett.
Palmer will likely serve as the Bills’ No. 2 quarterback this season.
