In his pursuit of staying in the National Football League (NFL), Palmer underwent tryouts with the Minnesota Vikings and the Oakland Raiders. Eventually, he secured a contract with the San Francisco 49ers on November 1, 2005, following injuries to quarterbacks Ken Dorsey and Alex Smith. However, Palmer’s tenure with the 49ers was short-lived as Dorsey and Smith recovered after three weeks, resulting in Palmer’s release without having played a single game. He was later re-signed by the 49ers in March 2006 but was released on August 29, 2006, just before the conclusion of training camp.
On September 11, 2006, Palmer joined the Montreal Alouettes’ developmental roster, although he did not participate in any games during that time. However, Palmer decided to leave the CFL on May 24, 2007, shortly before the start of the 2007 season, to pursue a career in broadcasting.
