Paul Posluszny Agrees To Six-Year Deal With Jaguars

New, comments

Boy, that escalated quickly. I mean, that really got out of hand fast.

Just over two hours ago, Jason La Canfora reported that the Jacksonville Jaguars were targeting free agent linebacker Paul Posluszny. Then, shortly thereafter, FOXSports.com's Jay Glazer openly predicted that Posluszny would end up with the Jaguars.

Now, La Canfora is back to bury the hatchet. Posluszny, who spent the first four years of his career with the Buffalo Billshas agreed to a six-year deal with the Jaguars, per La Canfora's latest report.

La Canfora reports that the Bills fought very hard to re-sign Posluszny, and that it was difficult for the team's former second-round pick to depart his old stomping grounds. It was the opportunity to return to a 4-3 defense, reports La Canfora, that ultimately swayed Posluszny to leave the Bills and head south to Florida.

Things now get interesting for the Bills at inside linebacker, where their depth chart runs just four deep with veterans Andra Davis and Reggie Torbor, as well as rookies Kelvin Sheppard and Chris White. Don't be surprised if the Bills bump this position up a bit on their list of priorities with Posluszny heading to Jacksonville.
