One of the last assistants announced as part of Rex Ryan’s coaching staff has a lengthy resume when it comes to working with young quarterbacks.
Offensive assistant Chris Palmer has worked in the NFL since 1990 and has coached several quarterbacks early in their careers.
He coached Drew Bledsoe with the Patriots under Bill Parcells when they won the AFC title in 1996.
He coached Mark Brunell, though he was a vet at the time, to the AFC title game.
After serving as head coach for expansion Cleveland and Offensive coordinator for expansion Houston he worked with a young Eli Manning winning a Super Bowl in 2007.
He’s most recently served as OC of Tennessee 2011-2012.
Rex Ryan obviously sees a lot of football wisdom in Palmer and his experience with young quarterbacks can only help the team’s task of further developing EJ Manuel.
