The defensive needs come before all else. Most crucial is what the team will do at the defensive end…
Marcus Stroud Gone to Bills
With the move, the Jaguars receive not only the Bills two second-day picks, but also gain some cap space, as Stroud was due approximately a $5 million salary in 2008. Stroud has missed 14 of the team's last 30 games, and will turn 30 years old in June. The Jaguars are now left with John Henderson, Tony McDaniel, Derek Landri, and Rob Meier at defensive tackle currently under contract.
At first glance, this trade seems like a steal for the Jaguars. They got rid of a bad contract and a player who has a serious injury concern, who will turn 30 prior to training camp. Buffalo receives help at defensive tackle, and if Stroud is healthy, he could have enough of a chip on his shoulder to be an impact player again, but the health is the major question mark.
