XFL Game Analyst Greg Olsen Lands Future FOX Sports Gig

Greg Olsen’s work with the XFL has landed the current Seattle Seahawks TE a future broadcast job with FOX Sports. According to the New York Post, this deal will take effect when he retires from football.

“The contract will make Olsen the partner for Kevin Burkhardt after Olsen retires from the NFL. Olsen, 35, was going to leave the game for Fox after last season, but a $7 million contract and a chance to play with Russell Wilson made him change his mind to go to Seattle.”

Olsen was well like by XFL fans for his insight and commentary on XFL games. Including his memorable ‘flu game’ calling the Roughnecks vs Battlehawks match-up.

Olsen played with the Chicago Bears and Carolina Panthers before signing with Seattle. He is one of the best pass-catching tight ends in NFL history. His one-year deal with the Seahawks is for $7 million with a $5 million signing bonus. It makes sense for him to play one more year, then kick back in the broadcast booth.
