Wants to be paid among the top tight ends in the league

Greg Olsen, 32, made it clear he wants a new deal, but said he isn’t sure what the team’s response will be. “I don’t hesitate to say, if you look back the last four years … at not only the statistics, but the consistency, the productivity and the durability, all those things, there’s nobody that can match up and has done what I’ve done,” Olsen told Schefter.

Nerdy Football Analysis: While Olsen’s statements of consistency and stats are true, he still has two years left on his deal. He’s been a top 5 fantasy tight end the last three years going over the 1000-yd mark each season. Olsen wouldn’t rule out a training camp holdout saying “We’ll see how things go over the summer. We’ll see what types of responses we get from the organization,” he added.
