Olsen added a unique dimension to the broadcasting experience through his articulate communication of analytical and general football concepts backed up by his enthusiasm. However, despite his successful stint, the former Carolina Panthers tight end might be heading toward an offseason demotion. The reason is the looming entry of Brady into broadcasting. In this regard during his recent appearance at the Dan Patrick Show, Olsen gave insight into the situation he is in, “I am at this stage of my career of where I want to go and I think all we understand the delicate situation that we’re in right.
