The Jacksonville Jaguars have reportedly restructured linebacker Paul Posluszny's contract which should give the team more cap room, but will keep him with the team through the end of 2017.

That's according to Alex Marvez of FoxSports.com, who said he learned through a league source that Posluszny would be staying with the Jaguars for at least one extra season.

NFL.com reports the details:

The Jaguars are giving Posluszny a one-year contract extension that will keep him in Jacksonville through the 2017 season, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday. Rapoport adds Posluszny will take a minor pay cut, but the deal includes more guaranteed money. Posluszny was set to make $7.45 million this season.

After coming to Jacksonville in 2011, Posluszny had only missed one game in his first three seasons with the team, leading the Jaguars in tackles from 2011 to 2013. A torn pectoral muscle in a Week 7 victory over the Cleveland Browns derailed his campaign to make it a fourth consecutive season.
