Roth wants to be traded….

Cleveland Browns linebacker Matt Roth is looking for a multi year deal from the organazation. Roth was picked up off waivers from the Dolphins last season and started for the defense the tail end of the season. He is expected to start this year for the defense and looked like they found a diamond in the rough when finding him. This upsets me because Cleveland gave him an oppurtunity and now he wants out because they won’t give him a deal now.  He is a restricted Free Agent and doesn’t have much leverage.

Randy Ward, is a die hard Browns fan that hasn't missed a game since the Browns have been back in 99. Randy bleeds Orange and Brown and can't wait for that one day, when the Browns are on top of the mountain. Go Browns and Destination Super Bowl!!!!

    I am so, so sick of these crybaby athelets making so much freaking money and nnot realizing how good they;re got it. AND idiot fans who like to throw the owners money at them ‘cuz they deserve it’. let him sit the freakin bench if he makes ripples.

    From what I can tell, Roth wants what every player wants: some long-term security. His ability to make the kind of $$ he can as an NFL player — a starter, to boot, is not a long period to be sure. Cleveland brought him in and gave him a home. He’s got part of a season under his belt — in Cleveland. He was a 2nd round draft choice and played at a level commensurate with that status — good enough to let a first round choice go, anyway. He is a RFA Nobody in the league made an offer that matched his tender. So, the way I see it, he ain’t goin’ anywhere.

    I know that we cant trade Roth because he is the first out of the RFA’s to demand a trade and if we give it to him we lose negotiation power with the others. Then again, I see Leroy Hill wanting out of Seattle and Patrick Crayton wanting out of Dallas. Would it hurt to maybe at least enter into talks with those teams?

    I don’t see how it would hurt. At the very least, you can go back to Roth after doing that and say, “Hey man. We tried.” And if Seattle or Dallas bite, then we’ve cashed in a guy who was essentially signed as a flyer anyway.

    Personally I’d rather see if we can’t happify the guy enough to keep him. It helps our depth and makes the Dolphins look a little less stupid for taking him in the first place than if we end up having to cut him. Could be a win-win at the right price. Question is whether he’ll be willing to accept that.
