49ers plan to sign Bears TE Logan Paulsen

Mar 9, 2017 at 10:39 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers plan to sign Chicago Bears TE Logan Paulsen, per Fallon Smith of CSN Bay Area.


Paulsen spent four years (2010-2013) with current 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan with the Washington Redskins. Shanahan was the offensive coordinator in Washington at the time. Chicago signed Paulsen to their active roster on September 4, 2016.

Paulsen was signed out of UCLA by Washington as an undrafted free agent in 2010. In six NFL seasons (Paulsen missed 2015 due to injury), he has 82 catches for 816 yards and six touchdowns. Paulsen had just three catches for 15 yards last season but is considered to be an elite blocking tight end.

Bad news on the injury front keeps coming for the San Francisco 49ers, who on Friday announced they'd be without tight end George Kittle against the New York Jets this Sunday due to a knee injury. Kittle has been battling through the injury in recent days after sustaining it during the 49ers' Week 1 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Shanahan told reporters Friday the injury is one that would have resulted in a typical player being declared out earlier in the week, but Kittle's past resilience to injuries caused the team to wait until the last minute to make a decision. "We never really do that with George because of what he's shown us over these three years with him," Shanahan said during his Friday press conference. "We would have held out two more days to wait and

Some defensive line help may be on the way. It looks like Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah's gamble to turn down an offer from the San Francisco 49ers and await a better offer from a more desperate team paid off. That more desperate team, however, is now the 49ers after second-year defensive end Nick Bosa left Week 2's win over the New York Jets with what is believed to be a season-ending ACL injury. The 49ers are flying in Ansah, 31, to meet up with the team on the East Coast, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The expectation is that the defender will sign with the team after going through another round of COVID-19
