CINCINNATI (AP) -- Just when Jordan Palmer was ready to take his career to the Arena Football League, he got a most unusual offer.

The Cincinnati Bengals wanted to know if he would like to try to earn a spot as his older brother's backup. They didn't have to wait long for an answer.

Jordan Palmer has inked a two-year deal that gives him a chance to play behind his brother, quarterback Carson Palmer.

Having two brothers at quarterback is rare. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, no brothers have played quarterback for the same team during the Super Bowl era. Koy Detmer was on injured reserve for Philadelphia while his brother, Ty, played for the Eagles in 1997.

Jordan Palmer set school records at Texas-El Paso by throwing for 11,084 yards and 88 touchdowns. Washington drafted him in the sixth round last year, and he played in one preseason game before being waived September 1st.
