The Skinny On Niles Paul Gaining Weight

Posted by Andrew Walker on June 14, 2012 – 10:44 am

Perhaps Niles Paul had an inclination over the past few months he was going to be making a transition from wide receiver to tight end.

Going into his 2011 rookie season with the Redskins, Paul stood at 6-foot-1 and weighed 220 pounds.

Fred Davis Ranked No. 5 Future Tight End

Posted by Andrew Walker on June 12, 2012 – 9:56 am

New England Patriots’ tight end Rob Gronkowski took the tight end position to a new level in 2011, as the Pats’ offense parlayed his rare combination of size, speed and strength into a record-breaking season.

Gronkowski — who just recently signed a huge contract with the Patriots — is obviously considered by many to be the tight end to beat for the next few years in the NFL, but one Washington Redskins’ tight end also finds himself among that elite group.

Paulsen Gets ‘Invaluable’ Experience In ’11

Posted by Andrew Walker on June 8, 2012 – 10:18 am

Off the field, with his flowing brown locks grazing against his broad shoulders, Logan Paulsen’s California boy personality might make him appear to be one laid back guy.

On the field, however, Paulsen is anything but laid back, as the third-year Redskins’ tight end tries to perfect his craft against some of the best football players in the world.

Thursday, February 5: The New Tight Ends Coach Does NOT Balance Rocks

Posted by Matt Terl on February 5, 2009 – 11:04 am

When the team announced the hiring of Liberty University offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Scott Wachenheim as the new tight ends coach, I immediately Googled his name to see what would come up. I knew he was an old acquaintance of Coach Jim Zorn’s, so — given Zorn’s wide-ranging collection of hobbies — the possibilities seemed pretty much limitless.

And when I came across a Scott Wachenheim who considered himself a learner in the somewhat bizarre-sounding field of rock balancing, it seemed pretty much a done deal that this was the new tight ends coach. Sure, the rock-balancing picture didn’t look much like his headshot at Liberty, but I was too blinded by the vision of a 2009 full of fascinating press conferences to care.

When I got a chance to speak to Wachenheim, those specific hopes were dashed. “It’s not me,” he said. “That’s some other guy. I don’t know him, I’ve never met him, and I don’t even think we’re related.”

This was something of a disappointment to me, but the rest of what he had to say made him sound like a promising NFL assistant coach (which, if I’m being honest, is probably not a field in which rock balancing or strange hobbies play much of a role).

What was appealing about coming to the Redskins?

“First of all, NFL football is football at its highest level, and if you are a competitor you always want to compete at the highest level against the very best coaches. So, to me that is the most appealing aspect: having the opportunity to test my abilities against the very best in the business.

“I’m also very intrigued and excited about working with Dan Snyder and Vinny Cerrato, as well as Jim Zorn, whom I’ve known for 15 years.”

I know you worked with him at Utah State. Did you know him before then?

“I met Coach Zorn at Utah State.”

Coach Zorn has quickly developed a relationship here as an interesting guy. Do you share any of his hobbies? Read more »
