Only if your MAGI is under $70k (single), $116k (married, filing jointly), or $10k (married, filing separately but lived with spouse) according to IRS Publication 590.

The limits for contributing to a Roth IRA are $129k (single), $191k (married, filing jointly), or $10k (married, filing separately but lived with spouse).

These are 2014 numbers. I don't know that 2015 numbers have been published yet.

Who assumed given the size of his 401k contributions that OP's MAGI was going to be above these limits and would still recommend making Roth IRA contributions, if eligible, rather than Traditional IRA contributions if he has reached his 401k limits...
