  • Broncos' Malcolm Roach: Moving to Denver

    Roach (knee) is slated to sign a two-year contract worth up to $8 million with the Broncos, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Roach finished last season on injured reserve due to a knee injury but still managed to compete in 12 contests for the Saints, recording a combined 38 tackles. The 25-year-old will reunite with his former head coach, Sean Payton, and he should bolster Denver's depth at nose tackle.

  • Saints' Malcolm Roach: Finishes season on IR

    Roach (knee) logged 38 tackles and three passes defended across 12 appearances during the 2023 season.

The 25-year-old, who signed with the Saints as an undrafted free agent in 2020, has played a fairly sizable role as a rotational defensive tackle over the past two seasons, though he's now missed nine games due to injury over that span. Roach signed a one-year, $1.01 million deal with the Saints in March, and he's currently set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
