Jaguars Put Star on the Trading Block

The Jaguars coaching staff has made available one of their veteran stars via a trade. Click here to find out which player?

According to super-agent Drew Rosenhaus, the Jaguars are listening to offers for defensive tackle Marcus Stroud. Stroud is coming off a tumultuous season in which he was suspended four games for violating the league's performance enhancing drugs policy, as well as an ankle injury that required microfracture surgery.

2007 was Stroud's second consecutive lackluster season as he finished with just 22 tackles and 3 sacks. Marcus will turn 30 years old prior to training camp, and is due a salary of $5 million. It is likely that Stroud will never return to his Pro Bowl form, and $5 million is too much to pay for a player of Stroud's current caliber.
