Matt Roth, Jacksonville Jaguars Agree To One-Year Deal, According To Report

Matt Roth will take his talents to Jacksonville after playing for the Cleveland Brown the past season and a half.

Matt Roth had a pretty good season with the Cleveland Browns this past season. For the third time in three seasons, however, the defensive end out of Iowa will be taking his talents to a new team as he's reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Roth will be paid $3 million this season with the Jaguars, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, though it's a bit odd that the Jags only locked him up for a single season considering Roth is presumably heading into the prime of his career at just 29 years of age.

With the Browns last season, Roth recorded 59 tackles while assisting on an additional 27 to go along with 3.5 sacks as he started all 16 of Cleveland's games. In all, the former second round pick has amassed 20 total sacks over the course of his career.

Roth was one of the last marquee free agents left on the market so it will be interesting to see if anymore dominoes fall as the preseason begins.
