State of the Redskins Depth Chart: Tight Ends

Sean Patterson examines the Redskins tight end depth and determines who is likely to make the final 53-man roster.

Al Messerschmidt

This will be a short list, as all four of the tight ends on the current roster are expected to make the final 53-man roster

Fred Davis- The deep threat tight end has played well during his preseason snaps. Davis had a nice touchdown catch from Kirk Cousins during the Tennessee game. As long as Fred is healthy, he will be on the field.

Trending: No Change (He is the starter)

Logan Paulsen- Paulsen has had a good training camp and preseason. Paulsen is a good blocking tight end, a good special teams guy, and a proven clutch receiver. (That 4th and 10 catch against the Giants last season was so awesome.). Logan was a good possession receiver last season, and the Redskins quarterbacks will not forget that this season. Paulsen’s roster spot is secure and he will see plenty of snaps during the season.

Trending: No Change

Niles Paul- Niles Paul has made himself very valuable to the Redskins. Paul can play tight end if needed, he has wide receiver experience, he can play special teams, and he can be extremely helpful in the return game. Paul even took snaps at full back during the Tampa bay game. While he may not be the most impressive tight end on the roster, he has made himself an important part of this Redskins team.

Trending: Upward

Jordan Reed- Jordan Reed has shown some flashes of excellence during the preseason. Reed has made excellent catches during the entire preseason. While many were confused when the Redskins took him in the third round, watching him in the preseason explains the decision. With the uncertainty of Fred Davis’ health (and uncertain future with the team past this season), Reed was a smart pick and he will have a chance to make an impact this season.
