He played for three teams in 14 seasons and became a three-time Pro Bowler from 2014 to 2016.
Olsen was also a Second-Team All-Pro in 2015 and 2016 when he played for the Carolina Panthers.
His best season came in 2016 when he had career-highs of 1,104 yards and seven touchdowns.
He finished his career with 742 receptions, 8,683 yards, and 60 touchdowns.
Olsen joined FOX Sports as a full-time broadcaster after his playing career.
However, he was allowed to sign a one-day contract to retire as a Panther.
But while his playing days are over, he is just getting started with his sportscasting career.
One year into his stint with FOX, he will cover the biggest game of the season.
Good for Greg. He is a stellar broadcaster. He’ll crush this!! https://t.co/SoqtZ3jbO2

The New York Post’s Andrew Marchand revealed that Olsen will join FOX anchor Kevin Burkhardt in the broadcast booth of Super Bowl LVII.
To which The Athletic’s Jordan Rodrigue said, “Good for Greg. He is a stellar broadcaster. He’ll crush this!!”
Olsen played in Super Bowl 50 with the Panthers, but lost to the Denver Broncos.
This time, he will return to the big dance as a broadcaster to share his knowledge about the game and dissect what’s happening on the field.
It’s a great feather in the cap of Olsen and he must maximize the opportunity because it might not happen again.
Olsen Fills In For Tom Brady
Olsen will be FOX’s analyst before Tom Brady slides into the roll.
The seven-time Super Bowl winner already has a ten-year, $375 million contract that will start once he retires.
It’s possible that Brady will retire after this season, given that the FOX deal is already in place.
In that case, Olsen should cherish this moment and do his best because Brady will be in his seat when FOX covers the Super Bowl again.
