Matt Roth was a wanted man today.

The Cleveland Browns, who landed the former second-round draft pick of the Miami Dolphins, were just one of six teams that put in a waiver claim for the defensive end/outside linebacker, according to an NFL source.

The Browns won by virtue of their 1-9 record, and Sunday’s 38-37 loss to the Detroit Lions was the difference. The Lions defeated the Browns on an untimed down after a pass interference penalty. Had that not happened, the Lions would have landed Roth, as they also placed a claim for him.

In order, Roth was also claimed by: San Francisco, Jacksonville, Minnesota and Indianapolis.

How much better would Roth have felt heading to the Vikings or Colts?

The new deal locks Celek up through 2016, and the team has now signed 22 players on the current roster to multiple contracts, proof that the Eagles are one of the most pro-active teams in the league when it comes to investing it its own players.
