I didn't see this posted, and with all the talk about Rivera staying or not, I think everyone forgot about it.

Greg Olsen surpassed Wesley Walls, for the most receiving yards by a receiving TE in a season in Panthers history. Ended with just 5 TD's but still. Congratulations to Olsen.

Already? wtf

We're not even using him to his full potential. I can't wait to see how we use him next season.

Thanks, was typing way too fast that I forgot the word 'season' in there.

I definitely like that we traded for this guy. I believe next season he will eclipse 1,000 yards. I would love to see us go to him more.

he's definitely a major key to this offense. He has saved us a lot of 3rd down.

WW this is still 12TDs during a single season,1999, but Olsen is clearly an elite TE.
One of the Panthers best trade.

I think the other records (TDs, yards all time) will be his eventually too.

Just hope his second job with the Avengers doesn't cut too much into his offseason training.

Good for Olsen. He very quietly had by far the most productive year of his career. Just went out and handled his business each and every week without much accolade.

Any record(s) Wesley Walls holds should have an " * " next to it anyway.

No idea how we jobbed the Bears like that in that trade.

Olsen has the best hands on the team right now.

Sorry, Smitty.

We are buds with the Bears and Olsen didn't fit. They also probably didn't think he had the potential to do what he's doing here, they probably thought he would be in the 500 yard area every year and Olsen might have liked the idea of coming to Carolina so we got him for fairly cheap.

It really is incredible how often players from here and the Bears get moved between the two teams.
