I read an article about a month ago that questioned whether Roth was injured, or just holding out for more money. It was shady how it all went down with Sparano not knowing anything about his injury in the press conference. If Roth's "groin injury" is bad enough to hold him out of OTAs, Training Camp, Exhibitions and 3 weeks of regular season... why has he not had more surgery and been done with it?
I think there's a 3rd option to the list, albeit an unlikely one, but maybe the FO wanted to keep an extra linebacker and concocted a scheme to keep Roth on IR while they decide what to do with Anderson/Wake/Walden/Moses.
I say if he's holding out for more money, PAY THE MAN HIS MONEY!! He put up incredible numbers for a first year convert. What do you guys think?
