Greg Olsen visiting Bills, Redskins, Seahawks

Recommended Posts

@AdamSchefter: Former Panthers’ TE Greg Olsen will visit the Bills and Redskins this week, per source. Buffalo’s GM Brandon Beane used to be with Carolinas, as did Washington’s HC Ron Rivera.

This is great news.  I think this guy still has gas in the tank and he would be a fantastic mentor to Sweeney & Knox and security blanket for Allen.  Here's to hoping!

We should really sign him and then one of Hooper or Henry.  Sick match up problems for other teams to deal with, Henry Olsen and Knox.  Then look for the #1 reciever in the draft.

It appears Bills get first crack over Redskins

 

@RapSheet: The visits are beginning soon: Olsen will visit the #Bills and old friend Brandon Beane and then the #Redskins and old friend Ron Rivera this week.

Using Buffalo to drive up the price from Washington, me thinks...

Ya I would rather go after Hooper


Hooper probably will be the highest paid TE by the time FA ends.  I can’t see the Bills spending that kind of money on a tight end.

 

Olsen fits the profile of the player they are looking for.

Would you be ok with signing Olsen and turning the page on Tyler Kroft?  Maybe Lee Smith too?

What is this guys market value? Looks like it may be in the $5M per range. I'm for it only if is a mentor for Knox and we still are look at Hooper or Henry. Hooper, Knox, Olsen, Sweeney/Croom/Smith.

I doubt Beane will spend big bucks on the TE position.  This seems like the type of move that I anticipated.  Good mentor for Knox and Sweeney.

Or.....maybe Beane is helping a friend? We don't know what is going on behind the scenes here, so I won’t leap to judgement. I trust our guys not to be stupid. They all know the game being played here.

With a bit more tread on the tire...

 

My favorite Panther but based on injury history, he will be on the field about 10 games.  When on the field though the guy makes contested catches like few I have ever seen and he still has that skill based on what I saw last year.

 

Would love this weighing all the positives and negatives.  I think Tyler Kroft is likely a goner if this happens.

34 years old.  Had a decent season last year - 52 receptions for 597 yards.

 

If it was vet minimum with easy incentives, fine.  Want to be able to cut him early on if he doesn’t work out.  Would prefer to start Knox and give Sweeney a shot.

Yes to Olsen over either Kroft or Smith.
