Bengals Release J.T. O'Sullivan

 (The following is a press release from the Bengals)

            The Bengals today made the following roster moves:

            * Acquired rookie QB Dan LeFevour (6-3, 230; Central Michigan) on waivers from the Chicago Bears. LeFevour (pronounced "luh-FEE-ver") was a sixth-round Chicago selection (181st overall) in the 2010 draft. He played in all four of the Bears' 2010 preseason games and passed 19-for-41 for 204 yards with one TD and one INT. He also rushed for 38 yards on five carries. He was a prodigiously productive four-year starter at Central Michigan, the only player in NCAA major school (FBS) history with more than 12,000 career passing yards and 2500 career rushing yards. He had a hand in an FBS-record 150 touchdowns, passing for 102 while rushing for a school-record 47 and scoring one as a receiver. His Central Michigan career passing totals were 1171-of-1763 (66.4 percent) for 12,905 yards, 102 TDs and 35 INTs. He rushed for 2948 yards on 671 carries (4.3). His head coach for his last three seasons at Central Michigan was Butch Jones, now head coach at the University of Cincinnati.

            * Terminated the contract of QB J.T. O'Sullivan, releasing him to free agency. An eighth-year NFL player, O'Sullivan came to the Bengals in 2009 and was in the No. 2 QB role. He played in all five Bengals 2010 preseason games.


            The Bengals today signed seven players to the team's practice squad. The signees, who all were with the Bengals during preseason, are:

            --TE Chase Coffman (second-year player; Missouri)

            --G Otis Hudson (rookie; Eastern Illinois)

            --DT Clinton McDonald (first-year player; Memphis)

            --S Jeromy Miles (rookie; Massachusetts)

            --S Rico Murray (first-year player; Kent State)

            --LB Vincent Rey (rookie; Duke)

            --FB Joe Tronzo (rookie; Louisville)

            The Bengals have one spot open to add a practice squad player, as the league maximum is eight.
