Paul Posluszny appears headed for the Jaguars

Pittsburgh Steelers v Buffalo Bills Getty Images

We expected the Jaguars to be aggressive in free agency filling holes in their defense, and it looks like they are off to a fast start.

Jay Glazer of FOX writes via Twitter that Paul Posluszny will sign with the Jaguars.

He revealed the information while casually answers a reader’s question on “Poz,” so we’re not exactly sure if Glazer is “reporting” this as fact or if he just expects it to happen.  Knowing how careful Glazer is with information, we suspect it is the former.

Losing Posluszny would be a big blow to the Bills defense, who already struggles against the run.  The move could also signal that Kirk Morrison won’t return to the Jaguars.

UPDATE: Florio has confirmed it’s a done deal.  Multiple reports indicate it will be a six-year contract.

    Good fit. They must have one of the top notch medical staffs for their defensive M*A*S*H* unit by now. Posluszny is just crossing his consistently broken “t’s”.

    Dont do it Poz..

    Bills are 35 million under the salary cap. They have to pay somebody at some point. What are they thinking?

  4. eatingwings says: Jul 26, 2011 9:41 PM

    I hope it is true….

  5. flik44 says: Jul 26, 2011 9:41 PM

    Hope this is better than that last Buffalo LB you signed Jax… anyone recall Bryce Paup?

  6. jermely says: Jul 26, 2011 9:41 PM

    Kirk! Come back to the Raiders at your natural OLB position where you rocked as a rookie! You, Wimbley and McClain and with that DL. Maybe the hit of loosing Asomugha (if we do) wont be that big..

    With Barrett Ruud and Kirk Morrison available, not to forget Stewart Bradley and Nick Barnett, I’m sure they won’t be banging their heads against the wall in trying to replace him.

  9. Awol.West says: Jul 26, 2011 9:45 PM

    Poz, the smarter move would be to go back home and suit up for the Eagles. They are very thin at LB, but why in the world would you want to play for a contender…

  10. tonyinjax says: Jul 26, 2011 9:45 PM

    Or Kirk will re-sign and now we have a solid LB core! Yes!

    Move Durant to the Left for run support. Poz to the right for putting the fear of God in opposing QBs and let Morrison crush the middle. I like it.

    Now if we can get someone to cover over the top…..

  11. chemistsdp says: Jul 26, 2011 9:48 PM

    Gregg – you obviously did not watch much Bill’s football last year (I actually cannot blame you!). Poz is a fan favorite in Buffalo but is not even an average linebacker. He was consistently terrible in pass coverage and got owned (sometimes run over) against the run. The only ones sad to see him go are the Jets, Patriots and the Dolphins!

  12. macjacmccoy says: Jul 26, 2011 9:49 PM

    BOOOOOO

  13. ipeefreelyagain says: Jul 26, 2011 9:49 PM

    I think they’re off to a false start as well. Wait a second, it’s gotta be your bull. Son of a.

  14. stubbyjones says: Jul 26, 2011 9:54 PM

    Thanks Poz. Good luck in Jacksonville.

  15. wojowbk says: Jul 26, 2011 9:59 PM

    Haha Paul Posluszny “putting the fear of God in QBs” with his sub 4.71 40 and no hint of pass rushing moves and Kirk Morrison “crushing the middle” one tackle 8 yards down the field at a time.

    Do some of you even watch football?

  16. strassman says: Jul 26, 2011 10:02 PM

    great fit for them i guess if you like a slow ILB…. time for the bills to sign a old vet… oh wait they did… Shawn something!

    “Poz to the right for putting the fear of God in opposing QBs”

    HAHAHA….lmao!! Did you guys sign Terrell Suggs?? Poz couldnt put the fear of god in my 3 yr old! Just remember two words for him: 1. Injured 2. Reserve

    Don’t let the door break your arm on the way out Paula poz

  18. asarabi says: Jul 26, 2011 10:18 PM

    It’s easy to shine on a horrible defense. Poz is a little overrated. It’s like winning a dunk contest at a school for midgets. None the less it’s clear that the Bills aren’t even faking trying to build a winner anymore.

  19. mechajaguar says: Jul 26, 2011 10:19 PM

    YES!!!!!!!

  20. cjepp says: Jul 26, 2011 10:22 PM

    Def a fan favorite. As a Bills fan, I really liked Poz. But to be honest, he wasn’t all that great. I will miss him nonetheless

  21. juiceboxsupply says: Jul 26, 2011 10:22 PM

    Even when the league is forcing Buffalo to spend money, the worst defensive team in the league just let their best linebacker walk.

  22. jpmelon says: Jul 26, 2011 10:22 PM

    Not thrilled about this….I just bought the damn jersey last year.

  23. skoobyfl says: Jul 26, 2011 10:27 PM

    Calling all Jax opponents, throw over the middle & you’ll be rewarded.

  24. johnnyjagfan says: Jul 26, 2011 10:29 PM

    Love the fact we got a high-energy, kamakazi LB…hate the fact that he seemed to miss more games than he really played well in. Durant needs help & maybe Jack sees a lil’ Del Rio in Poz…too bad they can’t hit in practice anymore or he’d find out.

    Good grief.

    *********************************************************
    Not to mention if McClain gets hurt, we have someone to fill in at middle linebacker who isn’t named Rickey Brown.

  27. almelo95 says: Jul 26, 2011 10:40 PM

    Had high hopes for you as a Bill Poz, but you were no better than average. Best of luck in Jax.

  28. xstaticonradio says: Jul 26, 2011 10:43 PM

    Good riddance seriously. If I had a dollar for every time he missed a tackle…I’d have a lot of money.

  29. jebdamone says: Jul 26, 2011 10:45 PM

    man it makes me a little sad that poz is going to leave the bills as he was one of the few solid things they had going for them on the defensive end. if this means the vikes can snag morrison to replace leber i would be pretty happy though.

  30. billsfan30192 says: Jul 26, 2011 10:51 PM

    We will see i dnt think this is a done deal. Buffalo WOULD be able to replace him but the bills have expressed they would love to keep him and poz has said he wants to stay. Probably trying to get leverage on buffalo

  31. frostbelt says: Jul 26, 2011 11:05 PM

    POZ is a good team player… average at best. Good luck in Jacksonville and eventually Los Angeles!

  32. rabidbillsfan says: Jul 26, 2011 11:27 PM

    For those of you bashing the bills for letting him walk, lets see the finacials first. If he’s paid 5 mil, or more, per season, hes overpaid. I see either barnett or bradley coming to the b-lo. I don’t really care about speed in the middle of our D. We need a solid thumper in there to fill gaps for moats and merriman/kelsay. I think nix and gailey have something up their sleeve, and it may leave the football world a bit suprised.

  33. iflounder says: Jul 26, 2011 11:27 PM

    could take or leave poz. just please don’t bring back whitner.

  34. momentumtech says: Jul 27, 2011 2:01 AM

    It looks like they are giving him $15 mil guaranteed which isnt too bad considering recent signings. Poz will help solidify the linebacker corps but they really badly need help in the secondary. They need to sign at least one starter. Also for everybody talking about Durant coming back to the Jags this year, you can forget it. Durant was told by the front office that his services will no longer be needed and they will not try to sign him. He is an unrestricted free agent and supposedly has interest from teams like Detroit and Chicago.

  35. momentumtech says: Jul 27, 2011 2:07 AM

    Oh yeah, sorry Bills fans but I think Poz can thrive behind our young talented DTs and really make a name for himself across the league.

    Might have overpaid a little bit but we dont know the details of how the contract is stacked across the six year period until later. $15 mil guaranteed isnt bad. Our GM is not the type to throw ridiculous money around unless warranted. Hopefully his play will warrant this contract.

    Also wanted to point out that it looks like the Bills matched the Jags contract offer, but Poz chose to make the move to Jax anyway.

  36. rabidbillsfan says: Jul 27, 2011 8:51 AM

    @momentumtech

    He played behind one of the best DT in the game the last 2 years… And where did you get the Bills matched the offer? Poz is a “Rah, Rah” guy, but doesn’t back it up on the field. He is poor at the point of attack, sub-par in pass coverage, and is, at best, an average pass-rusher. 7 mil avg for mediocrity is over paying my friend, no matter what way you slice it. Also, please tell us how you feel when every week he is either nursing an injury, or gets gets bull-dozed in the open field. If you look at the source of the Bills poor run D, you will see that it is the LB, not the D-line.

    If you were an alien and just landed on this planet, and this comment was the first thing you read about football, you would think the Buffalo Bills were the most well run and successful franchise in the league.

    However, if you read this comment after actually studying the organization and the resumes of the guys running it, you would realize that “rabidbillsfan” is insane.

  38. whags334 says: Jul 27, 2011 10:51 AM

    Way to go Jags and by the way, they are keeping Morrison too. He will be moving to his real LB position outside. This teams coming together Pepp!!! Now we just need a top tier DB!

  39. mdnittlion says: Jul 27, 2011 9:17 PM

    Glad to see The POZ is still in the league. WE ARE PENN STATE!!

  40. momentumtech says: Jul 27, 2011 10:39 PM

    @rabidbillsfan,

    I agree that is a lot of cheddar but we dont know how the contract is weighted. Ill bet a lot of the cash is for the last couple of years and by then who knows. I was just reading about Nate Clements and his $80 million contract from about 4 years ago. If he gets released this year he will only actually have gotten paid about $24 million out of it.

    With this recent GM, they havent been in the habit of overpaying players, so I will wait and see and hope he can be help solidify the D.

  41. jpmelon says: Jul 27, 2011 11:43 PM

    Why is this not published on either teams website yet? If this was a done deal it would at least be made public on jacksonvilles website….right?

  42. billsjetsfan says: Jul 29, 2011 12:11 AM

    I, personally, am not sad to see him go. I have never understood why Bills fans like this guy. He is not good we, as a defense are just that bad…I’m kinda hoping that Donte Whitner will follow him out also, however I’m not sure who would be left to make any tackles at all should that happen, haha.
