Bills DT Stroud signs 2-year extension

BUFFALO, N.Y. – Marcus Stroud's fresh start in Buffalo is paying off as the veteran defensive tackle was rewarded with a two-year contract extension potentially worth $16.5 million.

Stroud's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that his client has signed an extension that includes $12 million in guaranteed money. Stroud, coming off his first season in Buffalo after being acquired in a trade with Jacksonville, had two years left on his existing contract and is signed through the 2012 season.

The eight-year veteran and 2001 first-round draft pick could earn up to $28 million over the next four years should he achieve all bonuses.

The Bills did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Named a Pro Bowl alternate last season, Stroud finished fourth on the Bills with 85 tackles, registered 2 1/2 sacks, recovered two fumbles and forced one fumble.

It was a solid comeback by a former three-time Pro Bowl selection who had been limited by injuries the previous two years and deemed expendable by the Jaguars. The Bills gave up two draft picks — a third- and fifth-round pick in 2008 — to acquire Stroud.

"This has turned out to be a really positive thing for Marcus," Rosenhaus said. "It's been a blessing. He's one of leaders of the team. And even with the two years left on his contract, he was rewarded with a contract that's consistent with the best defensive tackles in the league."

Though the Bills missed pass rusher Aaron Schobel due to a foot injury for much of last season, Stroud provided needed bulk to what had been an undersized defensive line.

The Bills defense finished 14th in the league last season in yards allowed, an improvement from 31st the previous year.
