What Does the Marcus Stroud Signing Mean?

NFL.com lists Marcus Stroud as a defensive end. So the obvious implication would be that he brings the pass rush the Patriots so desperately need.
But I haven’t heard much about Stroud as a pass rusher. Apparently he played DE for Buffalo this year? Didn’t make any plays I remember and only had 3 sacks.
Plus, remember when he was dirty? He wasn’t playing end, he was inside with Henderson in Jacksonville, making a mess out of everyone’s running game.
Does this mean the Pats are looking at a 4-3 next year? I doubt it, but that’s the only way it makes sense. If you wanted a pass rush, Mathias Kiwanuka is available, and Mathias Kiwanuka Marcus Stroud is not.
