In a sort-of-surprise move, the Jacksonville Jaguars have released backup quarterback Jordan Palmer on Friday, according to multiple reports. Palmer was brought in for a tryout back in May and made the football team after a nice weekend of practice. During training camp, Palmer didn't look like he would make a case to make the final roster, but that changed a bit during the preseason.

Palmer finished the 2012 preseason going 19-for-36 with 204 yards and a touchdown, including leading some comeback drives late in the fourth quarter of the preseason. This means the Jaguars are going to wind up with just two quarterbacks on the roster in Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne. Up until the final preseason game, Palmer had been outplaying Henne.

With the Jaguars going with just two quarterbacks, it could mean the team is planning to go "heavy" at a position, such as wide receiver or linebacker.
