Olsen will join the network full-time in his post-playing career. Olsen announced his retirement from the NFL and shared that he will join the Fox NFL broadcast team. The decision was revealed during the Fox pregame show ahead of Sunday's NFC Championship between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Green Bay Packers.
From 2014-16, Olsen became the first tight end in NFL history to post three consecutive 1,000-yard receiving seasons.
Olsen was a two-time finalist for the NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.
The Chicago Bears drafted Olsen in in 2007. He finished his career with the Seattle Seahawks. He was traded to the Carolina Panthers in 2011 and played nine seasons there, earning three Pro Bowl nods and two AP All-Pro Second Team designations.
His 60 touchdowns rank eighth among players at the position. Olsen ends his football career ranked fifth in NFL history for receiving yards (8,683) and receptions (742) among tight ends in the Super Bowl era.
The time-honored tradition of players moving from the gridiron to the broadcast booth was active once again today, as Fox NFL Sunday saw three-time Pro Bowl tight end Greg Olsen indicated his next step.
