Possible Jaguars Free Agent Targets: Paul Posluszny

As the likelihood of a new collective bargaining agreement inches closer and close, we can actually start looking at potential free agent signings. A player I think is the possibility for the Jacksonville Jaguars is a linebacker who's traditionally killed the Jaguars everytime he faces them, Buffalo Bills linebacker Paul Posluszny. Posluszny dealed with injuries early on in his career and then the Bills defense made the switch to a 3-4 front, which he's not really suited for.

Brian Galliford of was kind enough to give me his take on Posluszny:

Paul Posluszny, ILB, Penn State - The lone survivor from the seven-man draft class of 2007 (and himself a free agent), Posluszny is something of a polarizing figure amongst Bills fans. Some call him overrated, others call him underrated. He's struggled some with injury (19 games missed in four years) and is not the type of impact linebacker some Bills fans expected him to be. However, he's a heady player that has been very productive (397 tackles, three sacks, four interceptions and four forced fumbles in his career). Those are in short supply on this team. He may not be a star, but he's a starting-level player in virtually any system, and that's not a bad thing to have. Indications have been strong for months that the Bills want to bring Posluszny back.
