Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen on Thursday, March 5 signed a three-year contract extension worth $22.5 million, including a $12.5 million signing bonus.
Huddle Up: A richly-deserved deal for Olsen who hit career highs this past season with 123 targets and 84 catches for 1,008 yards while snaring six scoring grabs. He finished fourth among TEs with 137 fantasy points and should remain a rock-solid TE1 even if the Panthers upgrade their WR corps as expected.

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: The Panthers' leading pass-catcher has been limited for two straight practices, but we haven't heard anything to suggest he's in any real danger of sitting out Sunday. Stay tuned, though, to make certain.

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 3, because he had fluid on his knee. He is expected to be ready for Week 14.
Huddle Up: Sounds like everything will turn out OK, but it's obviously a situation Olsen's owners will have to stay on top of the rest of the week.

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen left practice early Tuesday, Aug. 12, after cramping up.
Huddle Up: This looks to be your typical training-camp dehydration issue, but it's a subtle reminder that this is a player the Panthers -- and Cam Newton's fantasy owners -- can't afford to lose with the club's WR corps getting completely overhauled.
