Chase Roullier, who once played center for the Washington Commanders, could soon have a new team to call home.
Roullier reportedly paid a visit to the Arizona Cardinals on Monday, as reported by Matt Lombardo. Following the Commanders’ selection of Ricky Stromberg, a former center for Arkansas, in the third round of the 2023 NFL draft, the team decided to dismiss Roullier in May.
Roullier’s tenure with the Commanders was virtually done once the Wizards of Washington made the decision in March to open up free agency for Nick Gates.
Roullier was not let go because of his performance, but rather because of his ailments. The Washington Capitals used the 2017 sixth-round pick in 69 total games, with 63 of those games being starts.
Chase Roullier visited the Cardinals recently.
Roullier missed a total of 24 out of a possible 34 games for the Commanders in 2022 and 2023 after signing a contract for an additional four years in January of 2021.
In the year 2022, during Week 8 versus Denver, Roullier suffered a fracture to his fibula. In the preseason leading up to the 2023 season, he made his comeback, but on the final offensive play in a defeat to Detroit in Week 2, Roullier damaged his knee and was out for the rest of the season.
Although he is now 29 years old, Roullier might provide the Cardinals with some consistency in the center of their offensive line if they choose to play him. Roullier has only missed a total of five games throughout the course of his first four seasons before to his injury in 2021.
