By: NFLHeads2020

After 14 seasons in the NFL, Greg Olsen has announced that he will retire from the game and be a broadcaster for FOX Sports.

Olsen has had a pretty good career after playing 199 games: achieving 742 receptions, 8683 yards, and 60 touchdowns. Olsen is best known for his work on the Carolina Panthers, but he was decent in his time with the Chicago Bears and the Seattle Seahawks.

He was a three-time Pro Bowler from 2014-2016 and was the first tight end to have three consecutive 1,000 yard receiving seasons in those same years.

Olsen’s career started to decline after multiple injuries, and he decided to make a deal with FOX Sports to be a broadcaster after he retires.

Greg Olsen has been one of my favorite players to watch growing up and I can’t wait to see him as a broadcaster.
