Player Spotlight: Greg Olsen

Dave Larkin breaks down Greg Olsen's prospects for 2017 and beyond. 


  • He is a model of consistency: In the pantheon of great tight ends of the modern game, Greg Olsen’s reputation continues to grow. He has not missed a game since arriving in Carolina for a song in 2007 and has finished as a top-seven tight end in five of the past seven years.
  • His rapport with his quarterback: Although Cam Newton isn’t exactly the poster boy when it comes to accuracy, he has managed to uncork some lasers to his favourite target over the years. The two seem to have a mind meld on certain routes. Olsen’s uncanny knack for finding soft spots in coverage has bailed Newton out of many tricky situations.
  • Tight ends last longer: The new age of the NFL means more passing and more protection for receiving threats like Olsen. The trickle-down effect is less big hits and more years on the field. Savvy players like Olsen have the nous and situational awareness to minimize collisions and save their body for the next play rather than trying to be a hero. Even entering his age 32 season, he is in prime physical condition. How he produces – with smart route-running and an every-down toughness - shouldn’t change at all.
