Welcome Home J.T.

Our long national nightmare is over. No longer do we have to ponder how Koren Robinson would do under center. No longer do we have to wonder if he would wear his recieving gloves while dropping back, or if he would instead go with the Tom Brady-esque one glove style. Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a third string quarterback.

I would like to introduce you to J.T. Sullivan.

He's a 26 year old out of UC-Davis, with 4 years of NFL "experience". In his time in the NFL, he's been with three other teams, starting out with the 'Aints in 2002, seeing actual playing time with the Packers in 2004, where, the one time they let him onto the field, he rushed the ball twice, for -2 yards. After his glory years with the Pack, he caught on with Da Bears practice squad, which is where the Vikings picked him up.

If you're an avid follower of NFL Europe (who isn't?) you'll remember him as a key contributor to the Frankfurt Galaxy's failed attempt to win their fourth World Bowl. He threw two costly interceptions in the second half of World Bowl XII in a game the Galaxy would lose by six, 30-24.

Also, it seems he's had a few run ins with the law.

So, in conclusion, he's never thrown a pass in the NFL, he's a choker and he's had legal problems.

Welcome J.T.--I think you'll fit in great here.
