The Facts: The Redskins and Paulsen have reached an agreement on a one-year deal, a person with knowledge of the situation said.
Diehards Line: A seventh-year veteran, who has spent his entire career with Washington, Paulsen missed the entire 2015 season after having to have surgery to repair torn ligaments in his right big toe. Paulsen suffered the injury during training camp. The Redskins missed the 6-5, 261-pound Paulsen’s presence as their blocking tight end last season. He was the first of three tight ends that Washington lost to injury in 2015. Niles Paul and Derek Carrier were the other two. For his career, Paulsen has 79 catches for 801 yards and six touchdowns.
