Olsen caught 52 passes for 597 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games last season. He ranks fifth of all time among tight ends in catches (718) and receiving yards (8,444), trailing only Tony Gonzalez, Jason Witten, Antonio Gates and Shannon Sharpe in both categories.

From 2014-2016, Olsen became the first tight end in NFL history to record three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, earning Pro Bowl accolades all three years.
