Veteran NFL tight end Greg Olsen announced his retirement during his appearance on the FOX pregame show today.

“Sometimes when it’s time, it’s time,” Olsen said. “My time in the NFL now has come to an end.”

Sideaction’s Latest:

Greg Olsen spent 14 seasons in the NFL with the Bears, Panthers, and Seahawks. He’ll be most remembered for his years with the Carolina Panthers, where he was one of the best tight ends of all-time.

Olsen will retire as Carolina’s all-time leader in receiving yards (6,463), receptions (524) and 100-yard receiving games by a tight end with ten. He was also second on the Panthers’ all time receiving touchdowns list.

Greg Olsen had a deal in place to work with FOX Sports as an analyst, and will begin the next chapter of his career now. I’m sure he’ll be great as an analyst.

Best of luck in retirement to Greg Olsen.
