Last night's starting quarterback for the Chicago Bears is their first cut. From the man himself;

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p>I really appreciate all the kind words from the <a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23Bears&amp;src=hash">#Bears</a> fans but I&#39;m headed home today. Crazy biz but appreciative <a href="http://t.co/hbbmBw9Kl6">pic.twitter.com/hbbmBw9Kl6</a></p>&mdash; Jordan Palmer (@JwPalms) <a href="https://twitter.com/JwPalms/statuses/373441178303479808">August 30, 2013</a></blockquote>

I don't think Jordan Palmer will be out of work for the entire 2013 NFL season. He looked solid in his brief time as a Bear, and another QB needy team may give the fifty year pro a shot.

If Palmer isn't scooped up, he'll most likely be the defacto emergency QB for the Chicago Bears. If either starter Jay Cutler, or backup Josh McCown, suffer an injury at any point during the season, Palmer can expect a phone call from Marc Trestman.

This is the similar scenario to last year, McCown performed admirably during preseason, was a late cut, then when Cutler went down, McCown was brought back.

Teams have until 5pm Central on Saturday, August 31st to reduce their roster to 53. After a one-day waiver wire period, they can begin signing players to their eight-man practice squad.

If you want to see who is being cut around the NFL, SBN has all that info here.
