The Jacksonville Jaguars drafted defensive tackle Marcus Stroud with the 13th pick in the first-round of the 2001 NFL Draft. Stroud became a a dominant force on the Jaguars defensive line, eventually forming one of the top defensive tackle tandems in the NFL with John Henderson. Stroud will sign a one-day contract to retire as a member of the Jaguars, according to Tania Ganguli of The Florida Times-Union.

Stroud played for the Jaguars from 2001 through the 2007 season, being selected to three Pro-Bowls during his tenure. Stroud was traded to the Buffalo Bills prior to the 2008 season and played three seasons with the team before being released in 2011. Stroud signed with the New England Patriots in 2011, but didn't make it to training camp, sitting out the entire 2011 season.
