Patriots Sign QB J.T. O'Sullivan to Practice Squad

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The New England Patriots signed quarterback J.T. O'Sullivan their practice squad today. The Patriots practice squad now stands at its limit of eight players: WR Bam Childress, WR Kelvin Kight, LB Corey Mays, CB Antwain Spann, G Dan Stevenson, DL Santonio Thomas, G/C Billy Yates and O'Sullivan.

O'Sullivan, 27, was originally selected by the New Orleans Saints in the sixth round (186th overall) of the 2002 NFL Draft out of California-Davis. The 6-foot-2-inch, 227-pound signal caller has played in one career NFL game, but did not record any statistics in the 2004 regular-season finale for the Green Bay Packers (1/2/05). For two seasons from 2002-03, O'Sullivan was in active for every game as the Saints' third quarterback. In 2004, he served as the Saints' third quarterback for the first four games before being traded to the Green Bay Packers on Oct. 4, 2004 along with a 2005 second-round draft choice in exchange for cornerback Mike McKenzie and a conditional 2006 draft choice. He was listed as the Packers' third quarterback for 11 games before making his NFL debut in the 2004 season finale. In 2005, O'Sullivan was released by the Packers following training camp (9/4/05) and was signed to the Chicago Bears practice squad (9/5/05), where he spent the first nine weeks of the season. The Carmichael, Calif. native was signed by the Minnesota Vikings to their active roster from the Bears practice squad on Nov. 8, 2005, and was listed as the Vikings third quarterback for the final eight games of the season. He was with the Vikings in the 2006 preseason and completed 14-of-31 passes for 170 yards and no touchdowns with one interception.

O'Sullivan played in the NFL Europe League in 2004, starting eight games for the Frankfurt Galaxy, compiling a 6-2 record as a starter. He finished second in NFLEL with a 91.9 passer rating. O'Sullivan led Frankfurt to a berth in World Bowl XII.
