Most Recent Player News

Tight end Greg Olsen caught six passes on eight targets for 51 yards in the Carolina Panthers' third preseason game Friday night.

What It Means:

Olsen has been one of quarterback Cam Newton's favorite targets for a few years now, so this is just further confirmation that they are ready for a big year together. Especially considering the injury to Kelvin Benjamin, Olsen should be the highest-volume receiver in the Panthers' offense.

Olsen hasn't been the most efficient on his chances - he ranked just 10th in per-play Reception Net Expected Points last year - but he receives a lot of them. In fact, only Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham, and Martellus Bennett had more targets than Olsen in 2014. That should continue.
