Former Panthers’ TE Greg Olsen is signing a one-year, $7 million deal that includes $5.5M gtd with the Seahawks, per source. Olsen visited and negotiated with Buffalo, Seattle and Washington but felt most comfortable with the Seahawks.
The 34-year-old is joining an offense that has been targeting the tight end more frequently in recent seasons. If Greg Olsen can remain healthy, he'll be in the conversation as a low-end starting TE for fantasy purposes in 2020.
My feelings about the 2020 season! I look forward to the grind and the journey, for the reward at the end will be worth it!!! Love you #WhoDatNation. Let’s make another run at it!
2020 will be the 41-year-old's 15th season in New Orleans and 20th overall in the NFL. His choice to return will have a ripple effect in the Saints' QB room, as Teddy Bridgewater is now a near lock to hit the free-agent market and restricted free agent Taysom Hill's status is still unknown.

Having started every game for the organization since 2006, Rivers ends his 16-year tenure with the Chargers as their all-time leader in passing yards (59,271), passing touchdowns (397) and completions (4,908). He'll explore free agency this offseason so look for the 38-year old's name to be thrown around the rumor mill.
