Bills And Donte Whitner Have Talked Extension; Paul Posluszny Hasn't

Joe Buscaglia of WGR550 in Buffalo is reporting that the Buffalo Bills and soon to be free agent Donte Whitner have talked about a potential contract extension.

"We talked a little, we talked a little," Whitner told Buscaglia. "I leave all that stuff up to my agent. All I can focus on is helping the guys around me, helping myself and getting prepared each and every game."

Whitner is enjoying the most statistically successful season in his five-year career with the Bills. He is only nine tackles away from breaking his single-season mark and has already tied a career-high with five passes defended. The former first-round pick of the Bills has started 60 games including ten this season.

When Buscaglia asked fellow free agent to be Paul Posluszny about similar talks, the linebacker said he has not been contacted. Posluszny cited the status of negotiations between the league and the NFLPA for the reasons nothing has been broached between the two sides.

"Because the 30% rule, the uncapped year, the uncertainty of 2011," Posluszny stated. "They said 'We're going to put everything on hold, you know, wait until a new CBA is in place and then we'll go from there.'"

Earlier this week, Posluszny told the Beaver County Times he'd love to re-sign with the Bills.

Posluszny, much like Whitner, is enjoying a career year. He is on pace for over 100 tackles for the first time in his four-year career. The biggest knock against the inside linebacker is his durability. Poz has missed 19 of 58 possible games while with the organization due to various injuries.
