Jacksonville Jaguars: 5 Reasons Matt Roth Was a Massive Signing for Jaguars

Matt Roth signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday, adding to already impressive list of names the team has added to its defense during the offseason.

Roth had played in Cleveland for the past two seasons after he was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the second round in 2005.

Roth played in a 4-3 defense at Iowa but had played at outside linebacker since he came to the NFL. He will be making the transition back to his playing days at Iowa.

Defensive line was the only area of the defense that the Jaguars had not addressed in free agency. The team had already signed linebackers Paul Posluszny of Buffalo and Clint Session, of Indianapolis as well as defensive backs Dawan Landry of Baltimore and Drew Coleman of the New York Jets.

His signing reveals several things for a team that finished 8-8 on the season and missed the playoffs.
