  Steelers | Meeting with Matt Roth    Wed May 9, 12:06 PM

The Pittsburgh Steelers are meeting with free-agent DE Matt Roth (Jaguars) Wednesday, May 9.

Footballguys view: Roth missed seven games last year due to concussions and has attracted very little interest on the open market. He's been given a clean bill of health and could be added by a team looking for part time pass rush help.

Free-agent LB Matt Roth (Browns) is receiving interest from the Denver Broncos, Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: Roth looked great for the Browns last year, and the league highly values pass rush ability, so his lack of a contract almost two weeks into free agency is a bit curious.

  Patriots | Work out two free agents    Tue Aug 2, 06:07 PM

The New England Patriots worked out free-agent LB Matt Roth (Browns) and C Chris Morris (Panthers) Tuesday, Aug. 2.

Footballguys view: Roth was a very underrated pass rusher for the Browns last year, but whispers of a diva personality have him gathering dust on the shelf in free agency. It is also possible that Roth's contract demands are too high. He would be a coup for the Patriots, desperately in need of more pass rush from the OLB position.

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent LB Matt Roth could play left defensive end next season if he decides to re-sign with the Browns.
