The Buffalo Bills signed rookie linebacker Paul Posluszny to a four-year deal on Wednesday worth over $5 million. Posluszny wanted to make sure that he was in camp before the team's first practice on Thursday.

"Being a second-rounder, I don't think you should have that luxury," Posluszny said. "You've got to be in camp on time, especially being a rookie. ... You can't show up late and expect to be on the same page as all the older guys."

Posluszny also had an incentive to sign on time because it could be the difference between him winning a starting job or sitting on the bench to begin the season. After the team lost veterans London Fletcher and Takeo Spikes in the offseason, there are holes that the Bills need to fill with young talent.

"There's definitely a lot of work ahead. It's going to be fun, and it's going to be a challenge," Posluszny said. "It feels great to be signed and be here. I'm glad the whole process is over with and now I just get to concentrate and play football."

Now, the team's focus will shift to first-round pick Marshawn Lynch. Lynch, a running back, could be the man that makes or breaks the team's chances of making the postseason this year. The team parted ways with Willis McGahee in the offseason.

"We both seem to be really trying to work toward this," said team president Jim Overdorf. "I'm sure Marshawn wants to be in camp as soon as possible, and we'd like to have him here as soon as possible."
