Kirk Farmer (born August 27, 1979) is a former American football quarterback. He played college football at Missouri. He was signed by the St. Louis Rams as an Undrafted free agent in 2003. He also played for the Kansas City Chiefs and the Frankfurt Galaxy.

Early yearsEdit

Farmer attended Jefferson City High School along with future All-American, and Missouri teammate, Justin Smith. He was intercepted by Poplar Bluff’s Matt Dodd in a crucial matchup, destroying his confidence for many years. He passed for 770 yards, ran for 673 and accounted for 31 touchdowns in 1997 as Jefferson City won the state 5A championship while also a regular on Jeff City's basketball team that was ranked as high as No. 4 in the state.

College careerEdit

Farmer showed great potential during his time with the Missouri, but injuries continually slowed him down. His best season came in 2001, where recording the then 7th most yards of total offense in Tigers history with 1,976 yards despite starting only 9 games. Unfortunately, injuries once again reared their ugly head in his senior season, allowing Brad Smith to record his breakout.

Professional careerEdit

Farmer was not selected in the 2003 NFL Draft, but was signed by the St. Louis Rams as an Undrafted free agent. Initial reports revealed he was impressing the Rams with his arm, even leading then head coach Mike Martz to say Farmer has the strongest arm of any quarterback he’s ever worked with. But, as camp wore on, he seemed to have worn his welcome, being kicked out of two of three practices, and leading the coach that had praised him, to tell him, "You stink!". He spent one week as an inactive before the Rams released him. Farmer spent the rest of the year out of football before being picked up by the Kansas City Chiefs on January 27, 2004. He was later allocated to the Frankfurt Galaxy of NFL Europe where he spent the rest of the year. After returning home, he worked out as a wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys, but wasn't signed.
