Patriots cut Marcus Stroud

Hours after the New England Patriots worked out a trade for defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, they sent another defensive tackle packing.

Ian R. Rapoport of the Boston Herald reports that the Patriots have released Marcus Stroud, who signed with the team in March.

Stroud apparently isn’t completely healthy: Stroud had shoulder surgery in January that he had described as “minor,” but Rapoport reports that his shoulder has not healed six months later.

The 33-year-old Stroud started 45 games over the last three seasons with the Bills. Before going to Buffalo in 2008 he spent seven seasons with the Jaguars and was a three-time All-Pro.

    I would of liked to see what he could have done in NE. Best of luck to him.

    Cold biz, this NFL. Go back to Jax, Marcus! If he’s healthy & we can get that old school SEC run-stuffer back, we could slow down our division’s great RBs.

    I had my right shoulder rotater cuff and bicep done in January and I am still about 80% now.

    I would give this a big yawn though.

    It wouldnt surprise me if Bill revisits this at a later date if no one else picks up Marcus.

    Actually Stroud said he had surgery from “a miner”. With a pickaxe. Who was drunk.

    I met Marcus at the airport in Jax waiting for a delayed flight to Atlanta. We went to a bar on the tarmac and I can tell you, he’s one of the classiest players you will ever meet. Never one time did I feel at awe because I was drinking with an All-Pro. He was like anybody else. We miss you in Duval, Marcus!
