The Bears can take it as somewhat of a compliment, that the Cincinnati Bengals released veteran J.T. O'Sullivan and claimed Dan LeFevour.
The Bears had hoped to slide LeFevour -- a sixth-round pick -- onto the practice squad, but the Bengals claimed him and placed him on their regular roster.
LeFevour was clearly not ready to contribute early this season, but the Bears saw enough in him to try and develop him behind starter Jay Cutler and backups Todd Collins and Caleb Hanie.
But the Cincinnati Inquirer pointed out that his head coach at Central Michigan (Butch Jones) is now the head coach at the University of Cincinnati.
LeFevour broke numerous records at CMU.
O'Sullivan, meanwhile, has started eight NFL games, but he was just average during the preseason with two touchdowns and two interceptions. The Bengals obviously wanted to develop a young player like LeFevour as opposed to O'Sullivan, who is 31 years old.
