Buffalo’s struggling defense could lose two of its better players with linebacker Paul Poslusny and cornerback Drayton Florence set to be free agents.
In the PFT team checklist for the Bills back in May, we called Posluszny was the team’s most important free agent. He could be tricky to keep, but he’s not someone that wants out of Buffalo. Pat Kirwan of NFL.com reports Posluszny told him that he wants to return to the Bills.
It will be a tricky negotiation. Posluszny is a team leader and the Bills could sorely use some continuity on defense. Then again, they may have to pony up top-ten linebacker money for a player that has been very good as a pro, but not exactly a gamebreaker.
It sounds like Posluszny will give the Bills every chance to keep him. At this stage, they don’t have the luxury to let quality leaders walk away.
(Thank you. I just set a P.R. in writing Posluszny the most consecutive times without misspelling it. I think.)
