Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 18 vs ARI (5 / 3 / 37 / 0 rec)

With the passing attack as a whole struggling, leading target Greg Olsen wasn't able to get into a rhythm. Cam Newton was scattershot with his accuracy throughout and with Olsen being asked to protect more owing to the Arizona blitz threat, his numbers suffered. Olsen found some real estate to work with between the hashes and on quick, out-breaking routes but found little joy, with the Cardinals playing disciplined defense against him.

2014 Week 19 vs SEA (6 / 4 / 58 / 0 rec)

Normally a catalyst for this offense, Greg Olsen did not register his first reception until the third quarter, with Seattle's disciplined display in the back end taking away the tight end. It was clear the Panthers were reticent to leave their offensive line out to dry with deeper drops, so they utilised more short routes, hoping to get the ball out quickly. Even so, Olsen was either kept in as a blocker, effectively making his presence felt on a couple of nice Jonathan Stewart runs. Newton connected with Olsen on a beautiful pass down the seam late in the game, putting it between three Seattle defenders to lay it into Olsen's outstretched palms.

Panthers | Greg Olsen signs extension (Thu Mar 5, 05:24 PM) - Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen signed a three-year contract extension through 2018 Thursday, March 5.

Our View: The Panthers need Olsen as he was one of the few bright spots for Cam Newton last season. He led the team in receptions (84), tied for the lead in receiving yards with Kelvin Benjamin (1008 yards) and second on the team with six receiving touchdowns. Olsen has been a tremendous asset for Carolina since he joined the team and is one of Newton's favorite targets.
