Washington football training camp profiles: Offensive line
By Ian Cummings
Experience: 6th season
Draft Status: Undrafted, 2015
2019 Stats: N/A
2020 Outlook: The Washington football team signed Liedtke over two months ago, to add depth to the offensive line. Before his arrival in Washington, Liedtke had been a backup lineman for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2016 to 2019. Liedtke, standing at 6-foot-3, 305, has some versatility as a backup — his agent says he can play all five positions — but he’s only played ten total games in his NFL career.
Expected Role: Liedtke’s role, if he makes the team, would be that of a backup, the same role he’s been bestowed in previous spots. His experience would prove valuable in that area, as would his ability to play multiple positions on the line. An endorsement of the quality of his play is more difficult to attain; he doesn’t have the track record to prove he’s a viable backup, let alone starter. But his experience gives the team more depth for the time being.
Status: Liedtke is on the outside looking in, as far as roster hopes are concerned. The team did go out of its way to sign him in the middle of the offseason, but he’s not a very established player, and other younger backups might get the nod over him in what will be a rebuilding year.
