This is a great decision for all parties involved. It puts Olsen on an immediate contender and it gives the Seahawks a great security blanket for Russell Wilson.

All things considered, this move makes an absolute ton of sense. If you’re a fan of the Seahawks, you have to be incredibly happy right now.

Olsen’s career is certainly winding down, but that doesn’t mean he’s still not a great player. He most certainly is, and he provides a great veteran presence.

I can only imagine how happy Russell Wilson is with this decision from the Seahawks. He needs all the weapons he can get, and management just handed him one of the best tight ends in the NFL.
