Bears shopping TE Greg Olsen

Recommended Posts

This would be a fantastic move by the Falcons, especially if we could get the deal done with players and not picks (Jenkins and Jamaal).

Greg Olson is a freakish athlete and a very complete tight end. He's a character guy that definitely passes through our screen and could contribute right away. It's no secret that Tony is getting old, it could only help to have Olson subbing for him on a few plays during the game. Then once Tony is gone (assuming we extended Olson's contract), we wouldn't have to waste a draft pick on a TE next year.

If we pull off this move, extend Grimes, and land Edwards, I would call this a very successful FA period.

The Bears will receive a 2012 third-round pick from the Panthers in exchange for Greg Olsen.

After some speculation that LB Dan Connor was involved, it turns out the two teams couldn't agree on a player. The draft pick was then upgraded. We know Panthers GM Marty Hurney has few qualms parting with picks. The Chicago Sun-Times reports Olsen has agreed to extension in Carolina to tie up the final loose end.

A 3rd round?
