Former Bills linebacker Paul Posluszny announces retirement

Posluszny retires after 11 NFL seasons with Bills, Jaguars

Paul Posluszny, a former Penn State star and 11-year National Football League veteran with the Buffalo Bills and the Jacksonville Jaguars, announced his retirement Tuesday in a letter published on the Jaguars' website. I say this with a heavy heart: I am retiring from the NFL. He started 95 of the 100 games in which he played for the Jaguars and led the team in tackles five times. "Knowing I can no longer compete at a level I find acceptable, I have chosen to end my football career". "Living a life of "Success With Honor", being a great son, brother, husband, father, as well as serving your community and helping others, was always far more important than tackling running backs". He was a two-time consensus All-American (2005 and 2006), and he won the Butkus Award in 2005.

Posluszny's 231 tackles 2012 is a Jaguars' single-season record and his 192 stops in 2011 rank fourth. The first four years of his career came as a member of the Bills, starting all 45 regular-season games in which he appeared.

"Western Pennsylvania has had an enormous and lasting impact on me as a person and as a football player", Posluszny wrote. "I anxiously look forward to next football season to arrive, but this time with the sole focus of being a great husband and father to my loving family".

In the midst of the chaos of free agency season, one player has made a decision to hang up the cleats.

Aaron Gordon doesn't pass National Basketball Association concussion protocol, won't play against Spurs
Gordon, the Magic's leading scorer at 18.3 points per game, practiced Monday and said afterward he felt a bit winded. San Antonio hasn't missed the postseason since the 1996-97 season, when Tim Duncan was a senior at Wake Forest.

In addition to being known as one of Linebacker U's best-ever linebackers, he's also regarded as one of the Jaguars' most-beloved defensive players.

Posluszny was picked in the second round of the 2007 NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills.

Before the 2017 season, the longtime veteran never had the opportunity to experience and play in the National Football League playoffs.
