RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Paul entered last season in the best shape of his life. He had fully transitioned from wide receiver to tight end and was looking toward a breakout season. However, he suffered a severely dislocated ankle in the preseason and missed the whole year. He is making progress in his recovery, but it's clearly unlikely he will start this year in the same condition he was in last season. On top of all this, Jordan Reed had a breakout season in 2015 and is now the Redskins' unquestioned starter at tight end. The team also signed veteran Vernon Davis this offseason, further crowding the position, but Paul's value on special teams should help him see the field regardless of his involvement level on offense.

2015

Paul registered a career year on offense in 2014 when Jordan Reed struggled to stay healthy, collecting 39 receptions for 507 yards and a touchdown. He has good hands and speed for a tight end, when healthy, but struggles to block. A serious ankle injury put his 2015 season to an abrupt halt in August.

2014

Backup tight end and special teams contributor.

2013

Paul has struggled to make an impact after moving to tight end. He had an opportunity after Fred Davis missed the second half of the season but only caught eight passes. Instead the light catching Logan Paulsen saw most of the reps. Paul will likely have to prove himself once again in camp in order to make the team.

2012

Paul had a quiet rookie season in 2011. He spent most of his time on special teams before missing several games with turf toe. The team likes his size and speed but do not have room for him at wide receiver. He has been asked to bulk up and learn to play tight end. He will compete for a spot behind Fred Davis and Chris Cooley. Paul will be a bit undersized for the position but has good speed and could cause some match-up problems.
