The coaching staff cares, as it hurts the numbers needed for those units if your backup WRs all do not play ST.

Not sure that is the direction they will go. If there is one position Chadman might expect a vet player brought in through FA, it's at TE. They'll likely look for a bargain option to fill the position until Miller returns, and we'll see a bit of Paulsen.
Just on Paulsen, his measurables are similar to a TE that Haley has had some success with- Tony Moeaki.
What are the chances of David Johnson playing TE next season?
