Houston Texans sign Logan Paulsen to bolster tight end depth
Houston Texans will sign veteran tight end Logan Paulsen to the 53 man roster.
The Houston Texans will be signing tight end Logan Paulsen to their 53 man roster according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. Paulsen will be joining his fifth NFL team after going undrafted from UCLA in 2010. Paulsen caught on to the Washington Redskins for five seasons before spending short stints with the Chicago Bears, San Francisco 49ers, and the Atlanta Falcons.
Paulsen started in 65 of the 125 games he has appeared and has 91 receptions for 907 receiving yards and seven touchdown receptions. He was with the Falcons throughout last season and their previous training camp and preseason activities before being waived as the Falcons worked on trimming their roster to the 53 man roster for the 2019 regular season.
He will be joining a crowded group of tight ends that includes Jordan Thomas, Jordan Akins, Darren Fells, Jerrell Adams, and Kahale Warring. Texans will more than likely reduce the number of the tight ends they bring for their first game of the regular season against the New Orleans Saints.
Warring is a candidate to be placed on the injured reserve after missing most of the Texans preseason with a hamstring injury and was going through the concussion protocol. Paulsen will be a welcome addition to the Texans locker room and be a good influence on the Texans young group of tight ends.
Texans will have to make another move to incorporate cornerback Cornell Armstrong to the roster after his agent announced that he was joining Houston’s 53 man roster.
