LB Posluszny tells AP he plans to test free agency
Monday, July 25, 2011
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- Though Paul Posluszny would prefer re-signing with the Buffalo Bills, the linebacker will consider offers from other teams now that the NFL labor dispute has been settled and the league's free agency period is about to open.
Speaking to The Associated Press by phone shortly after NFL players voted to OK a deal on Monday, Posluszny said he considers the Bills to be his "top priority." Posluszny, however, added it would be irresponsible for him to not listen to what other opportunities are out there.
Selected in the second round by Buffalo in the 2007 draft out of Penn State, Posluszny completed the fourth and final year of his contract last season. He had expressed an interest in re-signing with the team before the lockout began in March. He is a native of Butler, Pa., outside of Pittsburgh.
