05/10/12 - WR Niles Paul moved from the crowded receiver group to tight end in case Fred Davis screws up again and Chris Cooley falls victim to his knee or high salary. Logan Paulsen, a 2010 rookie free agent who finished last year as the starter, is much more of a blocker than a downfield threat.
"Niles is a guy that has a chance to really help us at that position," coach Mike Shanahan said. "He gives us depth and obviously some big-play capabilities."
