Roach's agent Josh Wright declined comment on the status of negotiations with the Bears, but said six teams had called as of Saturday afternoon.

Roach has mostly played strong side linebacker during his six seasons with the Bears, but has also seen time in the middle.

He played the final four games there last season with Brian Urlacher -- also a free agent -- sidelined by a hamstring injury.

Wright said some of the teams are looking at Roach to handle the middle. He also says Roach has no preference if he plays there or at strong side.
