Detroit Lions[edit]

O'Sullivan and Adam Snyder in 2008

After hiring O'Sullivan's former offensive coordinator with the Lions, Mike Martz, the San Francisco 49ers signed O'Sullivan to a one-year contract for the veteran's minimum of $645,000 on February 29, 2008.[44][64][65][66] On August 12, head coach Mike Nolan appeared on a local radio show and announced that O'Sullivan had moved into the lead for the 49ers starting quarterback job.[67]

On August 22, Nolan officially declared O'Sullivan as the starting quarterback for the 2008 season.[68] He became the first 49ers quarterback to throw for over 300 yards in a game since 2004 when he completed 20 of 32 passes for 321 yards and a touchdown in a 33–30 win over the Seattle Seahawks on September 14.[43][67] O'Sullivan completed 16 of 28 passes for 256 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in a 29–17 loss to the New York Giants on October 19. He was also sacked six times and fumbled four times, but only lost one fumble. Afterwards, Nolan said that the play of O'Sullivan in the Giants game was "disappointing".[67][69] On October 26, O'Sullivan, after throwing an interception that was returned for a touchdown, was benched in favor of Shaun Hill by new head coach Mike Singletary during the second quarter of a game against the Seattle Seahawks.[70][71][72] O'Sullivan committed three turnovers in total during the Seahawks game, the interception and two fumbles.[72]

At the time of his benching, O'Sullivan and Brett Favre were tied for the league lead in interceptions with 11 and O'Sullivan led the league in fumbles with 11.[73][74] He also led the league in total turnovers with 11 interceptions and six fumbles lost. O'Sullivan, by himself, had committed more turnovers than any other NFL team at the time of his demotion. The Denver Broncos, New York Jets and Cincinnati Bengals were tied for the second most turnovers with 16.[73] On October 27, Singletary named Hill the starting quarterback.[72] Hill then started the final eight games of the season.[75] O'Sullivan completed 128 of 220 passes for 1,678 yards and eight touchdowns with 11 interceptions during the 2008 season. The 49ers won two out of the eight games that he started.[26] O'Sullivan, despite only starting eight games, was sacked 32 times, which made him tied for eighth in the NFL with Joe Flacco in number of times sacked.[76][77]

Cincinnati Bengals[edit]

An unrestricted free agent in the 2009 offseason, O'Sullivan signed a two-year contract with the Cincinnati Bengals in March 2009.[28][67][78][79] He was active as the Bengals second quarterback for every regular season game in 2009.[80] He played in three games, completing four of eleven passes for 40 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions.[26] He was also active, but did not play, in the team's AFC Wild Card Game.[81] He was released by the Cincinnati Bengals on September 5, 2010.[28][67][82][83]

San Diego Chargers[edit]

After O'Sullivan was cut by the Bengals, the San Diego Chargers claimed him off waivers on September 6, 2010.[33][67][84] He was inactive as the Chargers third quarterback for six games.[67][81][85] He was released by the team on October 20, 2010.[28][67][86] In November 2010, he had workouts with the Miami Dolphins and Detroit Lions.[67]

Oakland Raiders[edit]

O'Sullivan was signed by the Oakland Raiders on December 2, 2010 after quarterback Bruce Gradkowski was placed on season-ending injured reserve.[33][67][87][88] He was inactive as the Raiders third quarterback for five games.[81] The Oakland Raiders were the last NFL team he played for. He became a free agent in July 2011.[28][33][89]

Saskatchewan Roughriders[edit]

O'Sullivan was signed by the Saskatchewan Roughriders on April 19, 2012.[90] He was the team's third string quarterback for most of the season, behind starter Darian Durant and rookie Drew Willy.[91][92] O'Sullivan dressed for all 18 of the team's games in 2012, but played in just one game, completing nine of fourteen passes for 83 yards and rushing once for four yards.[91][92][93] He was released on March 8, 2013.[91]
