Once drafted in the third round by the Broncos, Michael Schofield never lived up to being drafted so high, but he did find a role as a rotational lineman for the team eventually. It seemed that once he settled into that role and became useful, he moved on.
After leaving Denver, Schofield signed with the Chargers, where he would spend the next three seasons battling his former team twice per year. Schofield was with the Carolina Panthers last season but remains a free agent.
Schofield is a veteran that can serve as a backup at multiple positions along the offensive line, though he is not a starting-caliber player and maybe never was. Still, experience is something all teams like to have and when you can get experienced offensive linemen, it doesn’t hurt.
Schofield played in 11 games while making three starts last season for the Panthers. He is still capable of a spot start here and there, but much like Elijah Wilkinson, is not a guy you want at tackle week in and week out as a starter.
For his career, Schofield has played in 87 games, making 69 starts in that time.
