Roster Battles: Tight End

Logan Paulsen had a big game against Da' Bears on Saturday. Did he pass Niles Paul on the depth chart?

Another week another installment of the NFL's hottest roster battle, the Redskins tight ends. We got to see a little more of what the backups can do against the Bears and now they'll head into this weekends game against the Colts in a close contest for roster spots.

Fred Davis (NC/10): Davis had one catch for 28 yards against the...whoops that's Tristan Davis. We didn't see much of Sleepy versus Chicago, but he still may be the team's best receiving option.

Chris Cooley (DOWN/7): I'm one of the few that doesn't think Cooley's roster spot is in jeopardy. We didn't see the veteran targeted or grab a carry at fullback in this game. I think Cooley's toughest competitor on the squad may not even be a tight end. Dorson Boyce is the guy Cooley needs to look out for at this point. If Cooley can continue to be productive flexing back and forth then he'll earn a spot on this team.

Logan Paulsen (UP/5): Paulsen reminds me of a Brahma Bull (or maybe he's the Redskins version of the Kraken?) and he showed what he could do outside of the blocking game on Saturday night. Paulsen registered three catches for 45 yards and looked pretty darn good. He's all set up for a clash with Niles Paul against the Colts.


Niles Paul (DOWN/4): If you just checked out the box score then you would've thought that ole' Baby Hands had a good game with four catches for 25 yards and a touchdown, but Paul struggled again. Poor blocking and dropped passes was the story for the second year man out of Nebraska. Paul rebounded though late in the game and you have to wonder if that glimpse of success is enough to intrigue Mike Shanahan?

Richard Quinn (DOWN/1): MIA

Xiangdre Beau Reliford (DOWN/1): MIA
