"I really appreciate all the kind words from the #Bears fans but I'm headed home today," Palmer tweeted. "Crazy biz but appreciative."
In two preseason games that he appeared in, Palmer completed 12 of 18 passes for 116 yards and a touchdown.
Palmer was drafted in the sixth round of the 2007 NFL draft by the Washington Redskins. He had his stints with Cincinnati and Jacksonville before landing with Chicago this preseason. He played college football at UTEP.
