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.
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.
