Charlotte, N.C.- Before the big win Against the Steelers, the Panthers and Star Tight End Greg Olsen were unable to come to terms on a contract and it looks like they might now be setting contract talks aside until after the season is done. ” I notified my agent and the organization that I will no longer be discussing any contract talks until after the year is over with.”
Rumor has it that Olsen turned down a 3 year deal worth around 50 Million, Signing bonus and guaranteed money figures were not released, but Olsen could be looking for somewhere around 4-5 year deal worth around 60 Million. He would be worth every penny as he finishes in the top half of all tight ends in yards and reception every year, but with him being 33 the team might not want to commit a 5 year deal to an already old player, and with super star in the making LOLB Shaq Thompson contract needing to be renewed, the team might not have the extra salary to dump on Olsen.
“We certainly hope we can reach an agreement once the season is over with Greg, he has been a constant professional and has been nothing but helpful to the young guys and especially helpful in being a reliable target for Cam every game.” Coach Miller speaking about current contract negotiations, ” I have not heard anything about Shaq’s contract situation either, but I’m fully planning on these contracts being taken care at the conclusion of the season, and personally speaking I would LOVE for these two to return for season 12.” If there is any breaking news, you’ll here first here at 2K Online Franchise.
