Bears pass catching TE Greg Olsen is reportedly on the trade block.
That according to ESPNChicago. Olsen is apparently asking out knowing that Mike Martz’s offensive scheme is where pass catching tight ends go to die.
The Bears are reportedly interested in acquiring Brandon Manumaleuna, the blocking tight end in San Diego that’s set to become a free agent.
The report suspects that Olsen could return a second-round pick to the Bears. I’m not convinced, though I believe a third is possible.
With as restrictive as free agency is going to be this offseason under the uncapped rules, it wouldn’t surprise me if teams make more trades to get their roster the way they want it.
I don’t see Olsen as a player of interest for Buffalo. Shawn Nelson fills the same kind of role. Manumaleuna however, is a player that would make sense for the Bills.
