The Panthers have signed veteran tight end Greg Olsen to a two-year, $17.1 million extension through 2020 according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The deal reportedly can be worth $20.1 million with incentives. and could potential make him the league’s highest-paid tight end. Olsen was scheduled to be a free agent after this year and was even linked with some TV jobs, but now he is under contract through his age-35 season.

2017 was a down year for Olsen as he was limited to seven games due to a foot injury and never looked healthy upon his return. He claims to be fully recovered this offseason, however, and will remain one of Cam Newton’s favorite passing options in 2018 and beyond.
