Roth Sounds Like He Won’t Be Back in 2011

Matt Roth was a nice little pickup from the Dolphins a few years back, and has rounded out into a decent player. It sounds like from comments in Sunday’s Plain Dealer he won’t be with the team come 2011 as he will hit free agency once the lockout ends.

“Right now I kind of like the 3-4 [defensive system],” Roth said in a phone interview, his first since the Browns’ season ended and the coaching staff was overhauled. “I feel the Browns are on the right track. But going into my seventh season, I want to play for a winner. I do feel the Browns are right there. They’ve done a good job. I’m not sure what’s going to happen.” Roth said he loved playing for defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, who was not kept by the new Pat Shurmur regime. “I challenge you to [find] one player who wouldn’t run through a wall for him,” Roth said. “I love playing that style. I know [new coordinator] Dick Jauron’s a good coach, but I don’t want to have to deal with no nonsense. Just want to come in and play, do my job and have fun. That’s a big factor in wherever I go.” He wouldn’t rule out following Ryan to Dallas, where Ryan now heads up the Cowboys’ defense.
