O'Sullivan out for the year?

You might be wondering why the Jets signed another center, Matt O'Neal, last week. After all, why would they need one with Kevin Mawae, J.P. Machado and Dennis O'Sullivan on the roster?<BR><BR>

From what he hear, the move was made because backup center/longsnapper Dennis O'Sullivan suffered a serious arm injury in the OTA's and might be out for an extended period of time - possibly the season. The Tulane product was going to be in for a battle to make the team with competition from players like Brandon Moore, Chris Smith, Brent Smith and Dave Yovanovits for the last two backup offensive line jobs. You have to figure J.P. Machado, with his ability to backup up at all three interior line positions is a lock to make the team.
