JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jaguars defensive tackle Marcus Stroud had $20,000 cash, two semiautomatic handguns, several pieces of jewelry and other items stolen from his Jacksonville home either Sunday night or Monday morning, according to the Duval County Sheriff's Office.

Stroud declined comment on the robbery. But police said he told them he returned home after practice Monday about 2 p.m. to find a crowbar on his kitchen floor near a rear door and his house ransacked.

According to police, Stroud didn't activate the burglar alarm and his safe was closed, but unlocked.

Stroud returned to training camp and practiced Monday night.

He was a first-round draft pick in 2001 from Georgia who has started the last three Pro Bowls for the AFC.
