According to our Fansided colleagues over at Bear Goggles On, the Bears are looking to unload talented tight end Greg Olsen. Olsen has been pretty productive during his four years in the NFL, racking up nearly 2,000 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns.
While Olsen has been a good player in Chicago, he’s not a great fit for the offense of Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz, who favors a “hand on the ground” tight end. Olsen is best used out in the slot in a spread-type offense…which just happens to be the offense Buffalo runs.
I’d personally love to get this guy - he’d certainly be an upgrade over the mess that is current Buffalo crop of tight ends - but he won’t come cheap. It’ll probably take at least a third round pick. He’s also entering the last season of a rookie contract and would not be cheap to re-sign. It’d be a pretty big risk unless you could ink him to a long-term deal before the trade was finalized.
Any thoughts? Tell us about it in the comments.
