If he does so, he will at the very least tie Packers tight end Jimmy Graham as the league's highest-paid based on average dollars per year.

It appears that Greg Olsen isn't quite ready to hang up his cleats and head to the booth to be an analyst.

If Monday Night Football wants Greg Olsen, they're going to have to wait.

Olsen and the Panthers agreed Thursday on a two-year extension, a source informed Adam Schefter of ESPN. The 33-year-old will make $6.5 million in 2018 before the extension kicks in for 2019 and 2020. Ed Dickson stepped up in the starting tight end role as he had 30 catches for 437 yards. But he did miss nine games in 2017 due to a broken foot he sustained in Week two.
