Browns: LB Matt Roth Given 2nd Round Tender, S Ray Ventrone to hit Free Agency

The news on the tenders the Cleveland Browns are giving players will be rolling in throughout the day. Early this morning, we have reports on the status of two of our restricted free agents: LB Matt Roth and S Ray Ventrone.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Roth was given a second-round tender by the Browns. Roth started the final six games of the season for Cleveland after being a mid-season pickup from the Miami Dolphins. He recorded four sacks and showed a knack for bull rushing. The second-round tender means that in order for another team to sign Roth, they would have to compensate us with a second round pick.

Meanwhile, according to Adam Caplan, the Browns won't be tendering Ventrone.

Browns won't be tendering RFA S/special teams ace Ray Ventrone, but has interest in re-signing him, source said.

I can't imagine the market will be huge for Ventrone, who contributed to our dominant special teams unit. I'd like to have everyone back on special teams who helped make the unit "click".
