Vikings Career: 1994-2001
Palmer came to the Vikings via the 2nd round of the 1994 Draft, as the 40th overall selection. Palmer played a unique role at Alabama as a WR/RB/QB. In fact, Palmer was one of the pioneers of the Wildcat QB position in college, due to his experience as a QB in high school.
Palmer led the league in Punt Returning in 1995, and he returned 2 punts and 1 kick for touchdowns in his career. Palmer never really took off as a receiver however and only logged 4 starts at the spot, recording 73 catches and 631 yards for his career.
Palmer spent his entire career as a Vikings.
