Roth was the subject of some controversy at the beginning of training camp in 2009. According to head coach Tony Sparano (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Sparano), Roth failed the team's initial conditioning test due to an unknown illness. However, Roth's agent, Drew Rosenhaus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drew_Rosenhaus), stated in a television appearance the failed test was due to a groin injury.[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matt_Roth#cite_note-1) On September 5, 2009, Roth was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football-Injury list. He will not be eligible to practice or play for the first six weeks of the 2009 season. [3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matt_Roth#cite_note-2)

I liked him coming out of college. I would like to see the Texans give him a look.

Roth is actually a decent player. Not really suited for our defense though.

I'm curious as to why he was cut.

yes, he's a talented 3-4 linebacker who's great against the run. he should be claimed pretty fast. my guess is Cleveland.

I think he is a solid football player but if he is healthy then I don't see him as a FA for long. He can also play DE, he has the height and bulk needed (6'4" 270-Lbs) we should take a look at least.

He is a cross between Barwin and Bulman in terms of playing style and size with experience at De, so I am not sure why he would not fit the Texans. Not advocating seeing him here as a don't see him as different enough from either, but I would not go screaming at the hills or anything if the Texans signed him.

I heard this kid had a hernia he never recovered from. Hasn't been nearly the same guy he was a year ago and doesn't appear to be an abled-bodied football player at the moment, hence Miami giving him away for nothing.

a guy on the Dolphins forum is sitting behind Drew Rosenhaus on a plane and he informed him that Roth signed with Cleveland

a decent signing for them for sure
