Greg Olsen will go down as one of the greatest tight ends to ever play the game. The dude was insanely talented, and had an amazing career with the Bears, Panthers and Seahawks.

Not only did he have a great career on the field, but he also made some serious money. According to Spotrac, Olsen made $70 million during his career!

That’s a lot of money in the bank!

Now, Olsen will take his talents exclusively to Fox Sports as an analyst, which he’s been doing for a minute or two.

As anyone who has watched him knows, the man is great on TV.
