http://www.nesn.com/2012/09/tyler-palkos-wikipedia-profile-says-hes-working-at-payless-only-months-after-starting-at-quarterback-for-chiefs.html

Tyler Palko was never expected to fill Matt Cassell's shoes in the Kansas City Chiefs offense, but he also wasn't expected to be selling them. Just a few months after starting six games at quarterback for the Chiefs, Palko has apparently found himself in the middle of South Dakota selling shoes.

According to Palko's Wikipedia profile page, the 29-year-old backup quarterback is "a former American football quarterback who is currently employed at Payless Shoes in Aberdeen, South Dakota." There has been no confirmation made of the claim, but looking at Palko's numbers from his six starts in 2011 it might be a good career move.

Palko, who has bounced between six different teams, including two CFL franchises, during his five year professional career, completed just 59 percent of his passes while throwing just two touchdowns to seven interceptions during his run as the Chiefs starter.

The profile update may merely be a cruel joke, but taking a second look at his stats Palko should at least be looking for a new profession because, it seems things just aren't working out at quarterback.

Seeing as how there is 0 credability to this story, im not sure why it's thread worthy.

Dunno if I believe it. Dude was in the league for 4 or 5 years. He should have a mil or 2 in the bank.


EDIT: That isn't even what his wiki says. It says he's working at an insurance company and doing pre and post game coverage for Pitt.

I don't think shitty fringe players make as much as you think they do.

He probably has a couple hundred K still, but I doubt he'd have 2 million even if he saved every penny he earned from his NFL 'career'.

It's still fake, but you know.

Don't kick a guy when he's down. Jeez.

What's he supposed to do? Not work, I guess.

Rookie minimum is about 200k. A 5 year vet like him should have made about 500k last year.

So yeah, I'd say he's made between a mil or 2 during his career.

Yeah. Guys like Palko try so fucking hard and never give up but eventually fail in the end because of factors beyond their control such as size, stature, arm strength, childhood coaching, etc. The guy went undrafted and never looked back for 6 years.

That's why pukes like David Wilson who cried when he fumbled make me sick. Try being Tyler fucking Palko, David. You'll shrivel up your tear ducts.
