Chase Roullier was a question mark heading into the offseason. He was set to become a free agent this year, and there hadn't been much word on a new deal being worked out during the season. Roullier has been starting since he was drafted in the 6th round in 2017. He took over for an injured Spencer Long and hasn't really looked back. Roullier has started 52 games for Washington, and will now be the starting center for years to come.
The team announced the contract extension today, the day before they play their season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles in a win and get in game. Washington can win the division in Ron Rivera's first year as head coach, and Roullier has been a big part of that.
This takes some pressure off of one spot going into the offseason, now attention will turn to right guard Brandon Scherff again. He was hit with the franchise tag last year, and still has not been able to work out a long term deal to stay with Washington.0
