Seattle Seahawks TE Greg Olsen 'will make a very fast transition' into the offense, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: Olsen's age isn't on his side, but we saw Russell Wilson turn Jimmy Graham back into a force in the red zone. Wilson could do the same for Olsen, making him worth a look as a low-end TE1.

Free-agent TE Greg Olsen (Panthers) is signing a one-year, $7 million contract with the Seattle Seahawks, according to a source. The deal includes $5.5 million in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Olsen turns 35 in March and has a history of injuries in recent seasons, which makes him a risky option in any fantasy setting. The addition helps QB Russell Wilson the most and hurts TE Will Dissly (Achilles), whose outlook already was questionable after consecutive seasons ending due to major injuries. Olsen is a fringe starter in 12-team fantasy leagues but has limited upside, substantial risk, and figures to be inconsistent given all of Seattle's other ways to attack.

Free-agent TE Greg Olsen (Panthers) is having contract negotiations with the Buffalo Bills, Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks, according to a source. Olsen met with all three teams over the last two weeks.
Huddle Up: Olsen has not officially said if he will play in 2020, but it appears he likely will play at least one more season. He likely would be the starter for all three teams and has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper fantasy leagues.

Free-agent TE Greg Olsen (Panthers) is visiting the Washington Redskins through Monday, Feb. 10.
Huddle Up: Olsen is a brittle option without a lot of upside, but he still has some TE2 clout in PPR leagues.

Free-agent TE Greg Olsen (Panthers) said he hoped to receive interest from the Chicago Bears once he became a free agent but that he has not been contacted by the Bears at this time.
Huddle Up: The Bears struggled at the tight end position this season, so they could check in with Olsen at some point. Olsen likely will be a starting tight end if he decides to play in 2020 and could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end.

Updating a previous report, free-agent TE Greg Olsen (Panthers) said he is scheduled to meet with the Buffalo Bills Wednesday, Feb. 5.
Huddle Up: Olsen is meeting with multiple teams over the next week and still has not announced if he will be playing next season. The Bills have Dawson Knox and Tyler Kroft on the roster, but Olsen probably would be the starting tight end if he signs with Buffalo. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues if he plays in 2020.

Free-agent TE Greg Olsen (Panthers) shone some light on his split from the Carolina Panthers Tuesday, Feb. 4, and said the parting of ways wasn't really mutual. 'I told them all along that if they wanted me back ... obviously I would have been back,' Olsen said. 'The 'mutual parting' might have been a little overblown. The reality was ... they weren't going to bring me back ... I understood it but I didn't force my way out of here.'
Huddle Up: Either way, Olsen is now a free agent and has reportedly already paid a visit to the Seattle Seahawks. He stands to receive a boost to his fantasy value on nearly any other team than the Panthers, but will still be a TE2 to begin the season in all likelihood.

Free-agent TE Greg Olsen (Panthers) will visit the Seattle Seahawks in the near future.
Huddle Up: Olsen is aging and probably shouldn't be taking as many snaps, but he has shown he can be productive in smaller increments. He'll be a PPR TE2 option wherever he lands.

Free-agent TE Greg Olsen (Panthers) is scheduled to meet with the Washington Redskins this week, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Olsen played for head coach Ron Rivera in Carolina and likely is a fit for the Redskins because of Jordan Reed's uncertain future. He would be a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end if he signs with Washington.
