Jaguars sign Paul Posluszny to contract extension

The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed middle linebacker Paul Posluszny to a three-year contract extension worth a maximum of $18 million with a base value of $15 million. The nine-year veteran signed a six-year contract in 2011. “We are excited to get an extension done with Paul,” Jaguars general manager David Caldwell said.  “Paul is a true pro in every sense of the word. He is a valuable asset on and off the field and has done a great job mentoring our younger players while also performing well on the field. “He has worked extremely hard rehabbing after his injury last year and will be ready to go for our offseason conditioning program beginning next week.” Posluszny was a Pro Bowl alternate in 2013, but was limited to seven games last season before suffering a seasojn-ending pectoral injury. Posluszny had 231 tackles in 2012 and 161 tackles and three sacks in 2013. “I can’t say enough about Paul and what he means to our team,” Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said.  “He is highly respected by his teammates and our coaching staff. You don’t measure a guy like Paul with just his stats but the overall impact he has on our team. “He has earned the respect of everybody in the building with his preparation, determination and drive to get better each and every day."
