The Buffalo Bills won't be able to re-sign any of their upcoming free agents until a new NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement is in place. That doesn't mean we have to ignore that issue, and we'll start the discussions with the free agent that the Bills seem most eager to bring back: inside linebacker Paul Posluszny.
Posluszny, who will turn 27 this coming October, is entering his fifth year in the NFL having completed just one 16-game season completely healthy. In 2010, playing for Chan Gailey for the first time, Posluszny missed a large chunk of training camp and two regular season games, but was productive. He led the Bills in total tackles (151), solo tackles (93) and assisted tackles (48), and tied for second on the team with six tackles for loss (tied with Marcus Stroud and Bryan Scott, and well behind Kyle Williams).
He also recorded a career-high two sacks - good for the fifth-highest total on the team - but did not record an interception or a forced fumble for the first time since his three-game rookie season.
We all know that Buffalo needs to make vast improvements in defending the run, and that GM Buddy Nix is eager to get bigger and more physical at inside linebacker. Thus, this poll: should the Bills re-sign Posluszny?
