Eric Palmer Kumerow (born April 17, 1965) is a former American football linebacker who played three seasons for the Miami Dolphins and one season with the Chicago Bears in the National Football League. Despite being a first round draft pick (16th overall), his brief NFL career has been widely criticized as a bust. He retired after only three seasons without ever starting an NFL game, and registering only five quarterback sacks.

He is the grandson of Chicago Outfit mob boss Tony Accardo, the son of Palmer Pyle, former NFL player, the father of Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jake Kumerow, the brother-in-law of former Miami Dolphins first-round pick John Bosa, and the uncle of Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa and San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa.[1] He now resides in the Chicago suburb of Bartlett, Illinois.[citation needed]
