Buffalo Releases DL Marcus Stroud

The Bills have released defensive lineman Marcus Stroud, Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reports. The Bills have confirmed the transaction. Acquired from the Jaguars for a pair of picks in the 2008 NFL Draft, Stroud (6-6, 310) has started 45 of the last 48 games for the Bills, totaling 150 tackles and 7.5 quarterbacks.

A defensive tackle in a 4-3 defense throughout his career, the 2001 first-round pick out of Georgia moved to defense end when the Bills converted to a 3-4 defense under new defensive coordinator George Edwards in 2010. Stroud turns 33 this summer, and was due a $1 million roster bonus on top of a $4.5 million base salary in 2011.
