Veteran defensive tackle Marcus Stroud is retiring with the team where he began his career, signing a one-day contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Stroud, 33, is a three-time Pro Bowl selection who spent the first seven seasons of his NFL career with the Jaguars.

Stroud is a 6-foot-6, 310-pound former University of Georgia standout who recorded 424 career tackles, 29 1/2 sacks and eight forced fumbles.

He last played in the NFL two years ago with the Buffalo Bills, starting 14 games and registering 49 tackles, three sacks and one forced fumble as he started 14 games.

Stroud was traded to the Bills on March 1, 2008 in exchange for third-round and fifth-round draft selections.

In 2009, the Bills signed Stroud to a two-year, $16 million contract extension.

He was cut on Feb, 16, 2011. He was with the New England Patriots during the offseason last year after signing a two-year contract, but was cut on July 28, 2011.

The Jaguars selected Stroud with the 13th overall pick of the first round in the 2001 NFL draft.
