Bears cut Jordan Palmer; Jimmy Clausen wins No. 2 job

The Jimmy Clausen revival in Chicago is complete.

The Bears released quarterback Jordan Palmer on Sunday as they got the roster down to 75 players. Palmer had the No. 2 spot on the depth chart for much of the offseason, but Clausen passed him with a strong preseason. Rookie sixth-round pick David Fales figures to be the No. 3 quarterback if he makes the team. He could also be sent to the practice squad.

A bust in Carolina, we wouldn't be surprised to see Clausen have some success as a starter in Chicago. Jay Cutler hasn't played all 16 games since 2009, and coach Marc Trestman showed he's the league's preeminent quarterback whisperer last year with Josh McCown.

Palmer, meanwhile, could also have a lucrative career ahead as a quarterback tutor. He worked with Blake Bortles throughout the draft process, and it's hard to argue with the results.
