Olsen announced during FOX’s NFC Championship pre-game show that he would officially hang up his cleats after 14 years in the league. Olsen was drafted in the first round out of the University of Miami in 2007 by the Chicago Bears, and he blossomed into a three-time Pro Bowler with the Carolina Panthers. He finishes his career with 742 receptions, which ranks 45th on the all-time leaderboard and fifth among tight ends. He likely would have finished higher on the leaderboard if injuries didn’t limit him to 11 games or fewer in three of his final four seasons. He will officially head to the broadcast booth in 2021, and he has the chance to garner some Hall of Fame deliberation.
