49ers Release TE Niles Paul, Claim TE Daniel Helm


Field Yates reports that the 49ers have released TE Niles Paul and claimed TE Daniel Helm off of waivers from the Chargers on Friday.

Paul, 29, is a former fifth-round pick of the Redskins back in 2011. He finished a three-year, $6 million contract with the Redskins before agreeing to a two-year, $8.75 million deal with the Jaguars last year. 

However, Jacksonville cut Paul loose during the season. He signed on with the 49ers a week ago. 

In 2018, Paul appeared in six games for the Jaguars and caught 10 passes for 98 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
