SCORING POSSIBILITIES Palmer is ABC's next ''Bachelor''

Well, we know he likes to huddle. ABC's newest ''Bachelor'' suitor is Jesse Palmer, second-string quarterback for the New York Giants. He'll make his debut when the series returns in April, though you can learn more about him Thursday when he grants an exclusive interview to TV's ''Extra.'' He's 25 years old, 6-foot-2, 219 pounds, and he has wavy brown hair.

He may also soon be unemployed. According to the New York Post, he's soon to be a free agent, though whether the Giants or any other team will want to sign him is unclear. He started the last three games this season, and the Giants lost them all. But maybe he's better off the gridiron at making passes and scoring.
