Free-agent tight end Greg Olsen will be visiting with the Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks this week, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Olsen will meet with the Redskins on Monday and the Seahawks on Wednesday and expects to make a decision by the end of the week. He has also met with the Buffalo Bills.
Olsen was cut by the Carolina Panthers earlier this month.
The 34-year-old is coming off of a 2019 campaign in which he played 14 games and caught 52 passes for 597 yards and a couple of touchdowns.
While that is a far cry from the type of production Greg Olsen posted several years back, it still represented a solid bounceback season for the veteran, as he appeared in just 16 contests combined between 2017 and 2018 due to foot injuries.
Olsen, who played his collegiate football at the University of Miami, was originally selected by the Chicago Bears in the first round (31st pick overall) of the 2007 NFL Draft.
He spent the first four years of his career with the Bears, with his most productive year in the Windy City coming in 2009 when he totaled 60 catches for 612 yards and eight scores.
Then, in July 2011, he was traded to the Panthers, where he proceeded to develop into one of the league’s best at his position.
Olsen had a breakout season of sorts in 2012, hauling in 69 receptions for 843 yards and five touchdowns, and between 2014 and 2016, he made three straight Pro Bowl appearances, tallying over 1,000 yards in each campaign. His high-water mark came in 2015, when he racked up 1,104 yards.
