Liedtke, 24, originally signed on with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent out of Illinois State back in May of last year. He was unable to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason but was later signed to Miami’s practice squad.
The Chiefs elected to sign him to their active roster in October of last year before bringing him back on a future/reserve contract. Unfortunately for Liedtke, he was waived just a few weeks after this year’s NFL draft.
The Jets later signed him to a contract in June only to cut him loose coming out of the preseason. Liedtke caught on with the Browns back in October but was cut loose a few weeks later.
The Bills also brought Liedtke for a visit last week but did not sign him to a contract.
Liedtke has yet to appear in an NFL game.
