So where will Chris Palmer work in 2006? The team's website had a story up late last week that Palmer was to skip to New Orleans and join Sean Payton's staff. Then Payton hired an OC off the Jets staff.
Today, the Star-Telgram reports that Palmer may sign with the Cowboys after all, but not necessarily as the offensive coordinator.
Where then? Perhaps as tight ends coach, if Paul Pasqauloni is moved to LB coach to replace Gary Gibbs? To WR coach, if Todd Haley gets a promotion to OC?
Wherever. I'll settle for some clarity, since this story is getting nutty.
Update : Not so fast on Palmer, boys and girls. Newsday reports that Palmer is still very much a candidate to become the Jets OC under new coach Eric Mangini.
Update II : Because I never let the release of a top OL coach go unnoticed. The Jacksonville Jaguars fired OL coach Paul Boudreau and will replace him with recently fired Vikings HC Mike Tice.
Update III : Palmer has been hired by the team.
