Nine Seasons. Three Pro-Bowl Appearances. A Super Bowl appearance. Greg Olsen has seen it all during his time on the Panthers. Now after all of that, both Olsen and the Panthers organization have “mutually” agreed that they should part ways.
Recently, Greg Olsen made a post on Twitter that implied that he is going to start looking for another team:
“At this time I have not closed the door on any potential career options. I still have the love of football in my heart and will explore all opportunities presented to me.” -Greg Olsen via Twitter.
Letting go of Greg Olsen only adds to the craziness of the Panthers’ offseason: Head coach Ron Rivera being let go, Luke Kuechly retiring, and the uncertainty about Cam Newton’s future with the franchise. After picking up Baylor head coach Matt Rhule and signing him to a seven-year, $60 million contract, it seems that Carolina is trying to start from scratch.
Seeing Greg’s public statement on him and the Panthers splitting up confirmed that he will still play again, so the question is not when he will play, the question is where?
