National Football League
Palmer played for the New York Giants of the National Football League (NFL) for four seasons from 2001 to 2005 after being selected by them in the fourth round (125th overall) of the 2001 NFL Draft. He spent most of his NFL career as a backup quarterback with the Giants, playing behind starter Kerry Collins. Palmer participated in two games in 2002. Palmer started three of his six games the next season. He was sacked by Washington Redskins defensive end Bruce Smith in 2003, the 199th sack of Smith’s career and the one that became him the all-time leader in sacks.
He served as a backup quarterback for the Giants for four years before being released on September 3, 2005. After Mark Rypien of the Washington Redskins, Palmer was the second Canadian to start at quarterback in the NFL.
Canadian Football League
In the beginning, Palmer looked to the Canadian Football League for work since he wanted to stay in the game. Palmer was selected by the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League (CFL) 15th overall in the 2001 CFL Draft. Although Montreal was the owner of his rights, the Ottawa Renegades attempted to sign Palmer as their starting quarterback in September 2005, and Palmer expressed interest in representing his hometown.
Palmer tried out for the Minnesota Vikings and Oakland Raiders in an effort to find another opportunity to stay in the NFL, and on November 1, 2005, the San Francisco 49ers signed him as an injury replacement for quarterbacks Alex Smith and Ken Dorsey. Three weeks later, Dorsey and Smith made their recovery from injuries, and Palmer was cut loose without ever making a down. Palmer was once again signed by the 49ers in the offseason in March 2006, but he was later let go on August 29, 2006, near the end of training camp. He was added to the Montreal Alouettes’ development squad on September 11, 2006.  Palmer did not show up for a Montreal game. Before the 2007 season began, he left the CFL to pursue a career in broadcasting.
