Tight end Greg Olsen is a free agent after being released by the Panthers on Monday and his search for a new job will start with a couple of visits with old friends from his time in Carolina.

PFT has confirmed that Olsen is set to visit Buffalo and Washington this week.

Bills General Manager Brandon Beane was in Carolina’s front office before heading to Buffalo and head coach Sean McDermott was once the Panthers defensive coordinator. Rookie Dawson Knox led Bills tight ends with 28 catches for 388 yards and two touchdowns during the 2019 season.

Olsen played for Washington head coach Ron Rivera until Rivera was fired by the Panthers late last season. The oft-injured Jordan Reed did not play at all in 2019 because of a concussion and Vernon Davis announced his retirement ahead of Super Bowl LIV on Sunday.

  1. If laid back no discipline Ron Rivera thinks Olsen has anything left he’ll be signing him immediately

  2. If those are his only 2 options then Buffalo would seem like the best decision. It’s a playoff team and has a young, promising TE in Dawson Knox and a big armed QB with shaky accuracy in Josh Allen who needs as many sure handed weapons as he can get.

  3. A 35 (going on 36) year old TE with foot issues is not a signing a smart team would make, unless that team was a TE away from a Superbowl.

  4. And who will throw to him in Buffalo? Of course, he’s used to playing with a bad quarterback

  5. If the choices are Buffalo or Washington, it looks as if he’ll be in a Bills uni next season.

    It’d be a good move for them since Beane can’t otherwise ID soid TE talent.

  6. Either team means no ring at the end of your career. Although Buffalo’s 1% chance of winning a Super Bowl is better than Washington’s Zero percent of winning!

  7. If the Pats want him, he’d be there with bells on. No reason to give this guy a retirement contract. He’s done.

  8. “He’s completely done”

    He had 42 catches for 597 yards and 2 TDs, 11.5 yd/catch

    Not outstanding but far from “completely done”. Did you even bother to look at what he did this past season?

    If his choices are Buffalo or Washington, Buffalo is up and coming, Washington remains a rancid excuse of a franchise so his best bet is the Bills

  9. Washington. If they lured Greg and Cam over they would have a good shot on offense. It would be interesting. Assuming Cam is healthy and could get out of Carolina.

  10. Olsen not as smart as I use to give him credit for, Buffalo or Washington?? Wouldn’t you want to go to a “contender”????

  11. Greg Olsen is a has-been. He’s a victim of father time.

    But I admire and respect Greg Olsen because he always did his best to make Cam Newton look good. He always supported Cam and is an example to everyone in the entire world,
    now get on your face and RESPECT Cam Newton!!!

  12. Think he would be a good fit in Buffalo. They have a #1 option already, he would be a great compliment, and maybe even a bit of a mentor. He won’t have the wear and tear as the go to guy every play. Could be a nice signing.
