LB Nick Roach Agrees To Terms With Raiders
The Oakland Raiders agreed to terms with Chicago Bears free-agent linebacker Nick Roach, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN Chicago reports citing an NFL source.
Terms of the deal are unknown but it's believed the Raiders offered a multi-year deal worth between $3 million and $4 million per year.
The Raiders flew Roach to Oakland on Wednesday for an official visit and presented the versatile linebacker with a strong offer late Thursday afternoon.
A six-year veteran, Roach has started 59 career games, spending the majority of his career as Chicago's starting strongside linebacker.
Roach filled in for Brian Urlacher at middle linebacker during the final four games of last season and finished the year sixth on the team with 84 tackles, including a career-best 15-tackle outing during the club's Dec. 23 win over the Arizona Cardinals.
