Redskins TE Logan Paulsen will continue to play a big role

When you think about the Washington Redskins' tight end situation, it's easy to see how Logan Paulsen can get lost. Teammates Jordan Reed and Niles Paul are flashier, faster and they show up in the box score more often.Having said that, Paulsen might be the tight end who ends up playing the most snaps of all three. In 2014, he finished just 178 snaps behind Paul and 30 snaps ahead...

Redskins TE Niles Paul could be in line for breakout season

At times during the 2014 season, Washington Redskins tight end Niles Paul looked like the team's best receiver. Through the first four weeks of the season, Paul racked up 313 yards and a touchdown on 20 receptions. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for his blocking.

Three reasons the Washington Redskins should sign tight end Tim Wright

The Washington Redskins’ passing attack in 2014 fell short of its potential for a number of reasons. Poor pass protection and mediocre quarterbacking played a part, but a lack of production at tight end was another important factor. Last season Jordan Reed, Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen combined for only about one thousand receiving yards and two touchdowns. If Washington is going...

Three reasons why the Washington Redskins can win the NFC East

The Washington Redskins have a combined seven wins over the last two years after a 10-6, NFC East winning season in 2012.

Washington Redskins re-sign TE Niles Paul

Niles Paul was a 5th round pick of the Redskins’ in 2011 and turning the big bodied wide receiver into a pass catching tight end was always kind of a pet project of Mike Shanahan’s. Ironically, Paul didn’t really produce until this year, when Jay Gruden came in. Paul caught 39 passes for 507 yards and a touchdown on 280 routes run, largely in the absence of oft injured tight...

Should the Dallas Cowboys consider a TE during free agency?

It may not seem like a glamourous position, as tight end is still viewed by many as a job that is as much about being an offensive lineman as it is a wide receiver. But that’s a notion that is quickly changing, becoming more and more outdated with each passing season. Across the NFL, tight ends are a major part of passing attacks.
