Greg Olsen Gives The Carolina Panthers A Proven Receiving Threat

The Carolina Panthers cut the face of the franchise, Steve Smith, and let the only other three wide receivers on the roster that caught a pass last season leave as free agents. Tight end Greg Olsen is the only proven receiver returning from last season’s squad. Olsen should be Cam Newton’s favorite target this season.

Minnesota Vikings’ Defense Is Having A Disappointing Season
