Posluszny retires after 11 National Football League seasons with Bills, Jaguars

Posluszny retires after 11 National Football League seasons with Bills, Jaguars”

Former Penn State linebacker Paul Posluszny, who played 11 National Football League seasons with Buffalo and Jacksonville, announced his retirement Tuesday. Knowing I can no longer compete at a level that I find acceptable, I have chosen to end my football career. I say this with a heavy heart: I am retiring from the NFL. Simply put, his presence as one of the Jags' top leaders on and off the field will be missed as he led the Jags through the rough times, and more recently, the good times.

One of the best players in Beaver County and the WPIAL has played his last football game. "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".

Posluszny was a two-time victor of the Bednarik Award and a one-time Butkus Award recipient while playing for the Nittany Lions. He played the final seven years of his 11-season career with the Jaguars and led the team in tackles five times, according to our Florida Times-Union news partner.

Posluszny played seven seasons with the Jaguars and is the franchise's second all-time leading tackler (815).

"Western Pennsylvania has had an enormous and lasting impact on me as a person and as a football player", Posluszny wrote. Poz was a second-round draft pick in 2007 by the Buffalo Bills, before arriving in Jacksonville in 2011.

"I thank God every day for all that He has given me", Posluszny said in his statement. "Today, I would like to thank God for making me a Jacksonville Jaguar, and for allowing me the privilege of an 11-year professional football career". He made his first and only playoff appearance this past season, reaching the AFC Championship game with the Jaguars.
