Jags Extend And Restructure Poz

The Jaguars will likely lower Paul Posluszny's salary significantly and find out which player will be next.

According to a Fox Sports report, the Jaguars have agreed to terms with Paul Posluszny on a one-year contract extension.

While exact financial details weren't immediately available, Posluszny's deal will be extended by one year through the 2017 season. Posluszny also will receive a signing bonus as part of a contract restructure. Posluszny was set to earn $7.45 million in base salary for the 2015 and 2016 campaigns.

Posluszny, who turns 31 in April, led Jacksonville in tackles from 2011-13 after leaving Buffalo for a six-year, $42 million free-agent contract. Posluszny was on pace to do the same last season before suffering a season-ending pectoral muscle injury in Week 7 against Cleveland.

In January, Posluszny said that he planned to be ready for the start of Jacksonville's offseason workout program that begins on Monday.

It's likely that Posluszny's salary will be reduced significantly as he struggles mightily in pass coverage. It was somewhat of a surprise that the Jaguars even brought him back for 2015, as he hadn't played up to the level of his contract since signing in Jacksonville.

Expect to see a similar deal with tight end Marcedes Lewis prior to the NFL Draft.
