    Olsen and the Panthers agreed Thursday on a two-year extension, a source informed Adam Schefter of ESPN. The new deal is worth $8.55 million annually and could escalate to $20.1 million in total value.

    Impacts: Olsen was already under contract for 2018 at a $6.5 million base salary, so the extension will keep him in the fold through the 2020 season and provide plenty of incentive for the 33-year-old to delay his broadcasting career. Though his 2017 season was disrupted by a Jones fracture of his right foot, Olsen looked to be back at full strength in the Panthers' playoff loss to the Saints in the wild-card round, catching eight of 12 targets for 107 yards and a touchdown in the contest. With Olsen confirming earlier this month that he has no intention of retiring and has endured no setbacks with his foot heading into the Panthers' offseason program, it appears Carolina was comfortable making him one of the NFL's top-paid tight ends. With three 1,000-yard seasons prior to the injury-abbreviated campaign, Olsen has certainly proven worthy of the large financial commitment.
