"HOW CLOSE are Olsen and Newton? Olsen ate Thanksgiving dinner at Newton's house this past fall. The team rolled in late that night after a victory over Dallas, and it was well after midnight when Olsen and a handful of others showed up at Newton's house to feast on a meal his Auntie Gail made.
When Olsen appeared to go down with a knee injury against Atlanta in December, Newton later told his brother, Cecil Jr., that he "wouldn't even take the field without Greg."
"When he says that," Cecil said, "it means Greg is his road dog. That's his go-to. That says a lot about Greg and what he means to Cam."
