Professional career[edit]

Washington Redskins[edit]

2010 Season[edit]

Paulsen was signed by the Washington Redskins as an undrafted free agent following the 2010 NFL Draft. He was made the third-string tight end behind Chris Cooley and Fred Davis. Paulsen made his NFL debut in Week 3 against the St. Louis Rams. He scored his first career touchdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on December 12, 2010 on a one-yard pass from Donovan McNabb. At the end of the 2010 season, Paulsen played 11 games and recorded two receptions for 10 yards total and one touchdown.

2011 Season[edit]

During the 2011 season, against the Carolina Panthers, Paulsen caught two passes for 48 yards.[4] Late in the season, Paulsen was made the starting tight end with Cooley on injured reserve and Davis suspended.[5] Playing 16 games, starting six of them, Paulsen recorded 11 receptions and 138 receiving yards at the end of the season.[6]

2012 Season[edit]

By the start of the 2012 season, Paulsen was once again named the third-string tight end behind Fred Davis and Niles Paul. In the Week 7 game against the New York Giants, he had the best offensive performance in his career subbing in for Davis after the former tore his Achilles tendon early in the first half.[7][8] He would score his second career touchdown in the Week 11 win against the Philadelphia Eagles.[9]

2013 Season[edit]

Set to be a free agent in the 2013 season, Paulsen re-signed with the Redskins to a $4 million, three-year contract with another $3 million in incentives, on March 9, 2013.[10][11]
