Niles Paul could help solidify Washington Redskins passing game in 2014

Nebraska is where Niles Paul began his nose-to-the-grindstone approach to football, performing many tasks for the team while remaining durable in the process. As a wide receiver he led the team in receiving yardage during both his junior and senior seasons. Afterward he was the third of three straight Cornhuskers to be drafted by the Redskins in 2011. His fourth and fifth round predecessors...

WATCH: Redskins fail miserably on fake punt attempt

The Washington Redskins tried to spice things up with a 27-21 lead over the Minnesota Vikings late in the third quarter with a head-scratching decision to try a trick play in the form of a fake punt inside of their own 35-yard-line. As you can see in the GIF below, the play wasn’t executed very well.     Punter Sav Rocca showed off his lack of passing ability by missing his...

Niles Paul Looks to Improve in Year Two at Tight End

Last year, the Redskins made a bold move with a player that was thought to not fit the team’s plans at wide-out. The Redskins decided to move receiver Niles Paul to tight end in what would be his second season. Paul reminded Coach Mike Shanahan of a former player of his who was almost the...

Washington Redskins Niles Paul is still learning how to Gangnam Style

At one point in July of 2012, Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" was the hit song that you couldn't run away from. That all changed on July 15th when Korean rapper Psy debuted "Gangnam Style" on the Internet. Since then, the video has had over 900 millions views on YouTube and trademark dance has become the 2010's version of the "Macarena"...

Redskins’ Niles Paul lining up at tight end

The Redskins drafted Niles Paul in the 5th round last year as a wide receiver, but he barely saw the field in a crowded receiving corps in 2011, catching just 2 passes for 25 yards. The Redskins brought in another 2 receivers this offseason, leaving Paul as the odd man out, but rather than cutting him, Paul has begun working out with the tight ends. He was in the low 220s last season...

Redskins WR Niles Paul does backflip while catching pass (Video)

Redskins wide receiver Niles Paul only has two career passes, but as Jimmy Traina says, after showing athleticism like this, they may need to find more playing time for him. In this video, both Paul and Keith Eloi, a wide receiver in the UFL, do backflips while catching passes. First up is Eloi while Paul comes after that.   If the name Keith Eloi sounds familiar, it’s because...

Niles Paul Backflip Catch (VIDEO)

Whoa. Haven’t see that before (via @Niles_Paul). Not entirely sure it isn’t one of those NFL fantasy football commercials, but it looks real to me. In a related story, Niles Paul caught two passes for the Redskins last season, neither while backflipping.

Paul Sees Family, Revisits Super Heroes

AP Image Nebraska’s native son Niles Paul has returned home to spend time catching up with his family.  A native of Omaha, Neb., he spent his college days only an hour away in Lincoln. Going into the NFL, he knew that he would have to leave the land of Johnny Carson (and the band 311), and he ended up 20 hours away in Washington, D.C. The NFL season is a grind for anyone, especially...

Paul Returns In All Facets Of The Game

AP Image For NFL rookies, special teams may be their first and only opportunity to make it in professional football.  Playing special teams requires a different breed of player; one who is willing to run full-sprint at the opposing team in the ultimate game of Red Rover. Yesterday, the Redskins sent Niles Paul as their Red Rover. Let’s just say, he came on over: Most wide receivers...

Paul Defends His Respect For ‘Twilight’

On the gridiron, Redskins rookie Niles Paul is a gritty receiver, respectable return man, and intimidating presence on special teams. Off the field, he’s an Angry Birds enthusiast, movie connoisseur, and a shameless lover of the “Twilight” saga: <a href='' class='twitter-follow-button' data-show-count='false' data-align...
