ESPN’s Len Pasquarelli (welcome back, Len!) says that the Cincinnati Bengals and former 49ers QB J.T. O’Sullivan have agreed on a two-year deal.
O’Sullivan will back up Carson Palmer.
The free agency scorecard has been updated accordingly.
HOBSON HURTING FOR HATE MAIL? In the wake of the O’Sullivan agreement, bengals.com’s Geoff Hobson writes that he Bengals’ foray into free agency is winding down for lack of cap space.
Geoff, you know that’s going to get you called “Mike Brown’s Bobo” — and worse — on Bengals forums around the innertubes, right? Right. I know, that’s why you do it.
I’ll simply point out that the Bengals have a few opportunities to create more cap space if they need it. For example, with the Chris Crocker signing, Dexter Jackson is likely out the door. That would free up something in the neighborhood of $1.5 million in cap space.
But, if the Bengals can finish off free agency with a fullback, I’ll be satisfied. And they shouldn’t need a ton of cap room to do that. And it’s good to read that they are finally looking at offensive linemen in free agency, even it it is a backup.
