Former Commanders C Chase Roullier announces retirement : The announcement of former center Chase Roullier’s retirement from the National Football League was made public on social media on Wednesday.
Roullier, who was 29 years old at the time of his dismissal, had been placed on injured reserve for the 2021 and 2022 seasons by the Washington Commanders.
In a lengthy statement on Instagram, Roullier expressed his gratitude for the last two years, stating, “These two years have also given me a lot of time to reflect and gain clarity on my priorities in life.” The decision was not easy to make, but it was the best option after much prayer and consideration.
Roullier has participated in 69 games, with 63 being starts. Washington selected him in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft after playing college football at Wyoming.
The Commanders are considering using either free agent Nick Gates or rookie Ricky Stromberg, who was selected in the third round out of Arkansas in 2023. Both players are eligible to play for the 2019 season.
