Bills DT Torell Troup often credited Kyle Williams in helping him with playing the nose tackle position in Buffalo’s 3-4, but there was another veteran player that passed on valuable knowledge about how to play in the NFL last year.
In speaking with Troup through the course of the season he credited Stroud with teaching him how to pick up tells from opposing offensive linemen on film as well as quarterbacks and running backs, which he felt helped him play faster.
“I was pretty good with the film, but you can always learn something if you’re in that room with the vets,” Troup told me. “Those guys pick up formations so fast, faster than I do. So it’s always good to listen from guys like Kyle (Williams) and (Marcus) Stroud.”
That’s why Troup was quick to pass along his thanks to Stroud publicly on his twitter account Wednesday following the veteran defensive end’s release.
TorellTroup Marcus stroud is a great guy, a great teammate, and a great teacher of this game. He help me make strides during my first season……
Torell Troup I dont think i would have made it through this season without his guidance on and off the field. I thank him for all his help.
