Defensive tackle Marcus Stroud will follow in the footsteps of LT; will retire as a Jaguar


Running back LaDainian Tomlinson recently signed a one-day contract with his former team the San Diego Chargers to retire as one.  Defensive tackle Marcus Stroud will do the same with his old team the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Stroud, like Tomlinson, was a valued member of the team that drafted him.  Stroud was selected by the Jaguars in 2011 as the 13th pick in the first round.

During his time with the Jaguars, he was considered one of the best defensive tackles and was a three time Pro Bowl selection.  However, Stroud was suspended in 2007 for violating league policy on banned substances by using anabolic steroids.

Stroud was traded to the Buffalo Bills in 2008 where he stayed until he was released in February 2011.  The New England Patriots signed him in March 2011 but released him three months later.

For his career, Stroud has 424 tackles and 29.5 sacks.  Stroud could find a place in Hollywood now that he is retired.  He recently had a supporting role in the popular movie “Think Like a Man”.
