Posluszny Confirms Interest in Playing for the Giants

A new collective bargaining agreement is expected to make fifth-year players like linebacker Paul Posluszny an unrestricted free agent. While the former second-round pick out of Penn State would like to remain with the Bills, Posluszny told Sirius XM radio that he wouldn’t mind reuniting with former Bills coordinator Perry Fewell, who now coordinates the Giants defense.

“Definitely, because of that connection,” Posluszny said via Zach Berman of The Star-Ledger. “I love Coach Fewell and the type of defense that he ran when we were in Buffalo, you know, had a good relationship together. Actually I have an uncle that lives in the New York area and he just sent me a text the other day saying he’s read on the internet that the Giants is a possible spot for me.

“I mean, so yes, there’s a lot of interesting possibilities out there and the one thing about free agency, all players, I think, you want to know your true value.”

In 31 games (all starts) under Fewell, Posluszny totaled 247 tackles, one quarterback sack, four interceptions and four forced fumbles. Last season, Posluszny started all 14 games he was active and set a career-high with 151 tackles and two quarterback sacks playing in a 3-4 defense under coordinator George Edwards.

Should Posluszny land with the Giants, he would likely play middle linebacker, which would move Jonathan Goff, last year’s starting middle linebacker, to the strong side, where he’ll compete with 2009 second-round pick Clint Sintim, who is coming off a torn ACL.
