Redskins Training Camp Profile: C Chase Roullier
Roullier’s 2018 season
Last season, Roullier was one of the big wild card’s on the Redskins defensive line. The team had let their starting center from the previous year, Spencer Long, walk in free agency to clear the way for Roullier. While Roullier had taken over for the injured Long midway through his rookie season, it was important that he would make the leap in 2018 and help to solidify the middle of the offensive line.
And Roullier was able to do just that.
Roullier was the lone player on the Redskins last season to play 100 percent of the offensive snaps, seeing action in all 1,020 during the season. When on the field, he was a solid blocker and was able to improve his game. All told, he emerged as a fairly well-rounded blocker.
In all of his action, Roullier allowed just one sack and committed five penalties and graded out as the 17th best center in the league and 14th best pass blocker, per Pro Football Focus. It would be nice if he could clean up the penalties a bit, but it is worth noting that three of them came in Weeks 14 and 15 when Josh Johnson took over as the starting quarterback after being on the street for most of the season. So, if the team can find more stability at quarterback, maybe Roullier’s play will continue to improve.
Roullier is coming off a strong season, but he’ll need to continue to prove himself at training camp in order to continue his upward trajectory at the NFL level.
