Greg Olsen signs Carolina Panthers extension

Greg Olsen signs a three-year contract extension with the Carolina Panthers.

The Carolina Panthers have announced that they have signed tight end Greg Olsen to a three-year extension which
will keep him with the team through to the 2018 season.

The 29-year-old was a third-round Draft pick in 2011 and spent his first four years in the league with the Chicago Bears.

Olsen had his most productive season last year after recording 84 receptions and 1,008 receiving yards - both career highs - and making the Pro Bowl team.

"It's really a dream come true," Olsen said in a team statement.

"Since we've come to Charlotte, we very quickly realized that this is home. This community quickly embraced our family, so we put down roots here. We love it here. This is home for us."

General manager Dave Gettleman is now expected to add wide receiver targets and offensive linemen to continue to improve the team's offense.
