Palmer had cleared waivers and was placed on the Giants Injured/Reserved List prior to his release. The former Atlanta Falcons player had been signed back on May 12, just after the Giants rookie camp concluded.
To take his place on the 90-man roster, the Giants have signed former LSU tight end Chase Clement. Clement had originally been signed by the Giants just after the 2013 NFL Draft concluded as an undrafted free agent, but had been cut to make room for other players on the roster. With Palmer's injury, it allowed Clement to be re-signed and compete for a spot on the team.
Currently, the Giants have Brandon Myers, Adrien Robinson and Bear Pascoe as their three main tight ends, however, with the knee injury to fullback Henry Hynoski, Pascoe likely will get shifted to play fullback until Hynoski returns from surgery.
