Greg Olsen Moves Into the NFL Top 10

With his performance last week, Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen has made a significant list. Olsen is now a top 10 tight end in the NFL history in terms of receiving yards. His 73 receiving yards against Denver put him past Steve Jordan.

With the 2016 NFL season just beginning, it is probably a safe bet that Olsen will continue to climb the list and pass Heath Miller and Kellen Winslow.

Here is the top 10 list as it stands today.
