Former Jaguars On the Move, Buffalo Bills Release Marcus Stroud

A couple of former Jacksonville Jaguars players are on the move this week. The Buffalo Bills released former Jaguars defensive tackle Marcus Stroud today. Stroud was traded to the Buffalo Bills after the 2007 season. The Jaguars shipped him off for a 3rd and 5th round pick, which was used as ammunition to move up in the draft and select Derrick Harvey and Quentin Groves. The Bills shifted to a 3-4 defense that left Stroud out of position playing defensive end. He did an adequate job, but he's now 32 years old and Buffalo is rebuilding their team. I don't know if Stroud plans to continue to seek employment in the NFL, but if he chooses not to I'd say he had a successful NFL career.

Marcus Stroud netted 7.5 sacks while in Buffalo. In the same amount of time, Derrick Harvey and Quentin Groves combined for 10.5 sacks.

Some other former Jaguars were also on the transaction wire. Former Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders wide receiver Jerry Portersigned in the CFL with the Montreal Alouettes yesterday. Porter signed a big free agent deal with the Jaguars in the 2008 off-season and played just 10 games before being released after the 2008 season. Running back Chad Kackert and defensive back Dee Webb also signed with the Toronto Argonauts in the CFL yesterday.
