JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP)

Three-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Marcus Stroud is retiring after a decade in the NFL.

Stroud is planning to sign a one-day contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Wednesday before calling it quits.

A first-round draft pick from Georgia in 2001, Stroud spent seven years in Jacksonville. Teamed with John Henderson, Stroud gave the Jaguars one of the most formidable defensive fronts in football between 2002 and 2006. Stroud had 274 tackles and 22 sacks with the Jaguars and was voted a Pro Bowl starter in 2003, 2004 and 2005.

Traded to Buffalo in 2008, Stroud had 150 tackles and 7 1/2 sacks in three seasons with the Bills.

He is the fifth player to re-sign with Jacksonville before retiring, joining Tony Boselli, Fred Taylor, Paul Spicer and Donovin Darius.
