Seahawks sign former Pro Bowl tight end Greg Olsen

SEATTLE — The Seattle Seahawks have agreed to a one-year contract with free agent tight end Greg Olsen.

Adam Schefter, of ESPN, reports the deal is worth $7 million with $5.5 million guaranteed.

Originally a first-round pick by the Chicago Bears in the 2007 Draft, Olsen has played for the Carolina Panthers since 2011.

Olsen started 14 games for the Panthers last year, finishing with 52 catches for 597 yards and two touchdowns.

The Panthers released Olsen on Feb. 3.

Olsen was the first tight end in NFL history to finish three straight seasons with 1,000 yards receiving in 2016.

Olsen will provide depth to the Seahawks’ tight ends group as Will Dissly continues to recover from a torn Achilles he suffered in the Seahawks’ week six win over the Cleveland Browns.

Next up for the Seahawks is the NFL Combine beginning on Feb. 27.
