Paul Posluszny announced his retirement Tuesday after an 11-year National Football League career with the Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars.

Posluszny, 33, signed with the Jags during the 2011 offseason via free agency and was the team's second-longest tenured veteran behind Marcedes Lewis. He played four seasons for the Bills before playing seven years in Jacksonville.

One of the greatest linebackers in Penn State history, Posluszny published a lengthy retirement message on the Jaguars' website.

Posluszny made his first postseason appearance in 2017.

"With much sadness but without regret, I realize that I am no longer able to adhere to the unwavering standard of excellence that professional football demands", Posluszny wrote in a statement released by the team.

Throughout last year's off-season program, Posluszny worked as the base defense strong-side linebacker after playing middle linebacker his entire college and National Football League career.

In addition to being known as one of Linebacker U's best-ever linebackers, he's also regarded as one of the Jaguars' most-beloved defensive players. Knowing I can no longer compete at a level that I find acceptable, I have chosen to end my football career.

"I would like to offer my deepest thanks to the Pennsylvania State University, and the entire Nittany Lion family", Posluszny wrote. "I anxiously look forward to next football season to arrive, but this time with the sole focus of being a great husband and father to my loving family".

Posluszny did not reveal what comes next, but he could move into the coaching ranks or perhaps the media world.
