San Diego Chargers Sign J.T. O'Sullivan To One-Year Deal

In case you haven't heard, and you've missed my monotone vibrations due to a rather weird sickness I've dealt with for the past day, then I think I should be the one that tells you. In my most delicate voice possible. As you know, the Bengals terminated the contract of J.T. O'Sullivan on Sunday, allowing them to claim Dan LeFevour (much easier spelling than I anticipated) off waivers. LeFevour, by the way, took #8. The last player to take #8 was punter Nick Harris. The last quarterback to take #8 was Jeff Blake. Feel enlightened?

On Monday, the San Diego Chargers announced that they signed former Bengals quarterback O'Sullivan to a one-year deal.

According to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribute, O'Sullivan actually caused General Manager A.J. Smith to pause.

“A third quarterback was not in our original plans when making up the roster,” General Manager A.J. Smith said. “But with the availability of J.T., we felt it would be a good third level of maximum protection at a crucial position.”

O'Sullivan is destined to become the Chargers third string quarterback.
