The San Diego Chargers have tweeted that former Cincinnati Bengals quarterback JT O'Sullivan will be added to their roster on Tuesday September 7 and he will wear No. 4.

This is a solid pickup for the San Diego Chargers and nothing more. 

The Chargers now have three quarterbacks on the roster with starting experience.

The 31-year-old O'Sullivan has now bounced around the NFL with 10 different teams. He was the starter for the San Francisco 49ers in 2008. He was benched however, after a two interception, four fumble fiasco by head coach Mike Singletary. 

Since he led the NFL in both interceptions and fumbles at the time of his demotion, O'Sullivan is suited to be a number three quarterback in this league, but is not a guy that the Chargers want to rely on to win games consistently for them.

The Cincinnati Bengals cut O'Sullivan in order to claim former Chicago Bears quarterback Dan LeFevour off waivers.
