2012 Steelers Offseason: Pittsburgh Hosts LB Matt Roth

The Pittsburgh Steelers continue to look for some extra depth on defense as they invited linebacker Matt Roth to visit the team on Tuesday.

Roth has played eight seasons in the NFL with the Cleveland Browns, Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars after being drafted in the second round by the Dolphins in 2005. In his career, he has recorded 23.5 sacks in his career along with six forced fumbles.

Roth has also recorded a total of 296 tackles in his career, 217 of those solo. The biggest concern with Roth would be his durability, as he has not played more than nine games in three of the last four seasons.
