Browns Claim Former Second Round LB Matt Roth

7222_mediumAccording to agent Drew Rosenhaus, the Cleveland Browns have claimed LB Matt Roth on waivers from the Miami Dolphins. Roth was originally drafted by the Dolphins back in 2005 with the team's second-round draft choice (46th overall).

Roth progressively saw his playing time and production level go up from 2005-2008. He started 14 of the team's 16 games at outside linebacker, recording 53 tackles and 5 sacks. An unusual circumstance led to Roth's departure from the Dolphins. He was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football-Injury list prior to the start of the season; his agent called it a groin injury, while the team called it an unknown illness. Roth was released November 24th and promptly scooped up by the Browns.

It'll be interesting to see if Roth, a veteran, is immediately worked into the linebacker rotation.
