Paul Posluszny, MLB: I’ve had my eye on Posluszny for the entire offseason, but thought of him as more of a "wish" than a possibility. He was a restricted free agent under the old CBA and either way, the Bills seemed intent on keeping him around. Former Senior Editor Vic Ketchman said the following about him in the spring of 2007, before Posluszny was drafted.

Garrard received attention from Jaguars trainer Mike Ryan on the sideline before leaving the field.

Brad Meester’s hope is his teammates are as moved by the story as he is. Meester, the Jaguars’ 12-year veteran center, has been visiting 6-year-old Luke Akerstrom – who has been fighting Necrosis, defined as death of body cells – throughout the year. The two have become close and on Thursday, a big moment came for each.

Paul Posluszny's camp transition bears watching |
With all the attention on first-round Blaine Gabbert, it's easy to forget there's another play-caller in the Jaguars' training camp that will be just as much under the gun as the rock-star quarterback — middle linebacker Paul Posluszny.
