Heading into the final year of his existing contract the Carolina Panthers have signed Greg Olsen to a contract extension worth $22.5 million with a $12 million signing bonus. Olsen, who started his career in Chicago, battled inconsistency and misuse by former offensive coordinator Mike Martz during the first four years of his career. Since being traded to the Panthers for a third-round pick the former first-round pick out of the University of Miami, has become one of the more consistent players at the tight end position in the NFL. During his tenure in Carolina, Olsen has routinely served as Cam Newton’s security blanket and earned a trip to the Pro Bowl last season. In 2014, Olsen posted career highs in receptions (84) and yards (1,008) to go along with six touchdown grabs.

Dockett missed the entire 2014 season with a torn ACL.
