It’s not as if Broderick Washington doesn’t have a role on the team. Washington serves as a rotational depth defensive lineman who has appeared in a handful of games this season.

But it’s not as if he’s made much of an impact when on the field.

Washington has been a healthy scratch for a third of the Ravens’ games this season and has played just 106 defensive snaps, good for 18 percent of all snaps.

He’s recorded just five tackles and one tackle for loss in that time earning a lowly Pro Football Focus grade of 58.7 that would rank among the lowest interior defensive linemen in football had he played enough snaps to qualify.

His greatest contribution this season came not necessarily with a play he made but with a play he helped a teammate make.

Washington was the one who made the call for the specific field-goal block that ultimately resulted in Calais Campbell blocking Indianapolis Colts’ kicker Rodrigo Blankenship’s 37-yard attempt late in the fourth quarter of Week 5.

The Ravens went on to win the game in overtime, due in part to Washington’s call. Campbell praised his younger teammate after the game for his smarts on that play.

But that is probably the only time that most Ravens fans have heard Washington’s name called this season.

That’s perfectly fine as he plays an unglamorous position and is a former fifth-round pick only in his second season. But it’s safe to say his impact on the field has been minimal this year.
