Greg Olsen | TE | Carolina Panthers

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen has agreed to restructure his contract, which has created $2.4 million in salary cap space. He was scheduled to make $3.75 million in 2013 but will now make a base salary of $750,000 and the $3 million becomes an option bonus.
Huddle Up: The Panthers have cap issues, so Olsen is taking one for the team to help Carolina get under the cap. Olsen also lost a bit of value (and leverage) when offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski, known for his work with tight ends, left to become the Browns' head coach.

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (back) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 5.
Huddle Up: This is likely only an early-week precaution for the TE, who hasn't missed a game all season.

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen had 7 receptions for 98 yards in a 36-7 loss to the New York Giants on Thursday night.
Huddle Up: Olsen was one of the few bright spots in a dim home showing for Carolina. He was targeted a game-high 14 times, matched his season catch total and eclipsed his yardage total by 29 yards in the game. With bye weeks starting in Week 4, Olsen deserves consideration as a fantasy starter going forward.
