Redskins, Bills Fighting Over Recently Released Star
The Redskins and Bills are fighting over a recently released star.
Tight end Greg Olsen and the Carolina Panthers agreed to go their separate ways this past week.
Because Olsen has no intentions of retiring yet, he is now in the market for a new organization to sign with.
According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter, Olsen is currently in the process of meeting with two franchises interested in his services.
Former Panthers’ TE Greg Olsen will visit the Bills and Redskins this week, per source. Buffalo’s GM Brandon Beane used to be with Carolinas, as did Washington’s HC Ron Rivera.

Both Washington and Buffalo are said to want to recruit the 13-year veteran.
Olsen spent the first four years of his career wit the Chicago Bears, before ultimately joining the Panthers and playing for them for the last nine years.
“Former Panthers’ TE Greg Olsen will visit the Bills and Redskins this week, per source. Buffalo’s GM Brandon Beane used to be with Carolinas, as did Washington’s HC Ron Rivera,” Schefter tweeted out.
If Olsen opts to sign with the Redskins, he would be reuniting with his former Carolina head coach Ron Rivera.
Should he go with Buffalo, Olsen would re-team with current Bills general manager Brandon Beane, whom he also knows from Carolina.
Although most players have to wait until the start of NFL Free Agency on March 16 to recruit, Olsen being released means he is able to do so earlier than most.
Where will he ultimately end up? Time will tell.
