ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Tight end Logan Paulsen and fullback Darrel Young have agreed to three-year contracts to remain with the Washington Redskins.

Paulsen and Young settled on their new deals Saturday. Both had been set to become restricted free agents next week.

Undrafted from UCLA, Paulsen has spent three seasons in Washington, with his playing time increasing each year in large part because of injuries to Fred Davis and Chris Cooley.

Paulsen started 10 regular season games last season, catching a career-high 25 passes for 308 yards and one touchdown. He also caught a touchdown pass in the Redskins' playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Primarily a blocker for tailback Alfred Morris, Young rushed 14 times for 60 yards in 2012. He also caught eight passes for 109 yards and two touchdowns.
