    Panthers' Greg Olsen: Scores again in win over Redskins

    Olsen caught just three of six targets for 54 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Redskins. The reliable tight end scored for the third time in the last four games, but the Panthers didn't need to rely on him Sunday in what was a blowout victory. Olsen continues to be one of the most heavily-targeted Carolina pass catchers on a weekly basis, and his six touchdowns rank fourth among NFL tight ends. Next up for Olsen and company is a Thanksgiving trip to Dallas.

    Panthers' Greg Olsen: Catches eight passes against Titans

    Olsen caught all eight of his targets for 80 yards in Sunday's win over the Titans. The tight end unsurprisingly paced the Panthers in both catches and yards. Olsen is by far quarterback Cam Newton's favorite target, as he leads the team in receptions (45), yards (664), and receiving touchdowns (five). His high usage rate makes him an excellent source of consistent week-to-week production.

    Panthers' Greg Olsen: Finds end zone versus Packers

    Olsen caught 4-of-7 targets for 66 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Packers. The veteran's steady season continued Sunday, as he has now scored three touchdowns in the last four games, with at least 65 receiving yards in each contest. Olsen continues to serve as a top target for Cam Newton, and is on pace to lead the Panthers in receiving yardage. Look for the duo to remain productive in Week 10 versus the Titans.

    Panthers' Greg Olsen: Paces Panthers in receiving

    Olsen finished with a team-high six catches (on 12 targets) for 79 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's overtime victory against the Colts. Olsen once again led all Panthers pass-catchers in receptions, targets and yards Monday night, when moving the ball through the air in heavy rain proved rather challenging at times. Although he committed one notable, uncharacteristic drop, Olsen compensated with a 27-yard touchdown catch during the third quarter, bringing his season tally to four scores through seven games played. As Carolina's top target in the passing game, Olsen will now look forward to a Week 9 matchup against the Packers.

    Panthers' Greg Olsen: Catches game-winning touchdown

    Olsen caught 7-of-11 targets for 131 yards and scored the game-winning touchdown in Sunday's 27-23 upset win at Seattle. Olsen was already having a big game, before he shook free for a 20-yard touchdown with just 36 seconds left in regulation, giving Carolina the come-from-behind win. He's been a little up-and-down from an offensive production standpoint this season, with three strong games and a pair of duds, but he remains Cam Newton's most dangerous and reliable weapon in the passing game. He'll try to post another big game against Philadelphia in Week 7.

    Panthers TE Greg Olsen records two catches for 28 yards in win

    Panthers tight end Greg Olsen saw a team-high six targets, but wound up with just two catches for 28 yards Sunday in Tampa Bay. Olsen is usually the focal point of Carolina's passing offense, but quarterback Cam Newton struggled to get the ball to his tight end all afternoon. Nonetheless, it was encouraging to see Olsen lead the team in targets a week after posting a monstrous 134 receiving yards on eight catches against the Saints. The Carolina Panthers will have two weeks to figure out how to get the ball back into Olsen's hands, as they have a bye before traveling to a rambunctious environment in Seattle for Week 6.

    Panthers' Greg Olsen catches eight passes for 134 yards, two TDs

    Panthers tight end Greg Olsen reeled in eight catches off of 11 targets for 134 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's win over New Orleans. Coming into Sunday's game, Olsen had a combined seven receptions for 81 yards, totals he easily surpassed in Week 3. Olsen lined up tight and flexed out on Sunday, catching both of his touchdowns on 11-yard crosses and nabbing some downfield passes as well. Not surprisingly, Carolina's formerly mediocre passing attack rebounded as a result. Through three weeks Olsen leads the Panthers with 28 targets and, given the absence of bonafide threats on the outside, should remain the focal point of Carolina's passing offense.

    Panthers TE Greg Olsen targeted 14 times in Week 2 win

    Panthers tight end Greg Olsen caught 6 of 14 targets for 70 yards in Sunday's win over the Texans. Sunday's performance was closer to the type of production we have become accustomed to from Olsen and was a nice return to form after a disappointing Week 1. He was still targeted just once in the red zone, but that can be attributed to the Panthers scoring on a pair of long passes and a quarterback keeper Sunday. Olsen should continue to be heavily involved in the offense, as he is one of Cam Newton's most trusted targets, and he will look to find the end zone for the first time this season in Week 3 against the Saints.

    Panthers TE Greg Olsen not concerned with Week 1 performance

    Panthers tight end Greg Olsen is coming off one of the worst performances of his career in Sunday's win over the Jaguars, but the Pro Bowl tight end is confident he'll bounce back, reports The Charlotte Observer. Olsen was held to one catch for 11 yards Sunday, which was his lowest yardage total since the end of the 2011 season. "Sometimes you run good routes and things open up," Olsen said Monday. "[Jerricho Cotchery] scored a touchdown on that. It's all how the thing goes together. It's no different than when I would catch 10 balls last year. We don't set out to try and get one guy the ball. That's not our offense. That's not what we do." Olsen did have a touchdown negated in Sunday's contest due to a penalty and offensive coordinator Mike Shula said they will look to involve Olsen more. "We've got to make sure we move him around and get the ball to him," Shula said. "There were some other times that other guys had opportunities because they were favoring his side as well. We'll definitely work on – he's a play-maker for us – and we'll find ways to get him the ball."

    Panthers give TE Greg Olsen a three-year extension

    The Panthers announced they signed tight end Greg Olsen to a three-year contract extension on Thursday that will keep him in Carolina through the 2018 season, per the team's official website. The extension is worth $22.5 million, with a $12 million signing bonus, according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Olsen, 29, is fresh off a career year after setting franchise records for receptions (84) and receiving yards (1,008) by a tight end in a season. He cracked the 1,000-yard threshold for the first time in eight seasons in the NFL. He has 5,188 yards and 52 touchdowns in his career, and is the only tight end to catch at least five touchdown passes every year since 2008.
