Panthers Legend Greg Olsen Has Just Been Nominated For An Emmy


After retiring with a record number of awards and on-field achievements, beloved Panthers star Greg Olsen is continuing to impress off the field.

Olsen, who has become Fox Network’s top game analyst, was one of five nominees in the outstanding personality/emerging on-air talent category, according to a press release from the Panthers.

While still an active player, Olsen began his broadcasting career during bye weeks. In 2021, he and Kevin Burkhardt climbed to the top of Fox’s broadcasting ranks, as noted by the Panthers. The pair notably covered Super Bowl LVII last year.

Over his 14-year playing career, including nine seasons with the Panthers, Olsen recorded 742 receptions for 8,683 yards and 60 touchdowns. Between 2014 and 2016, he made history as the first NFL tight end to achieve 1,000 receiving yards per season for three consecutive years. In addition to his on-field accomplishments, Olsen remains committed to the Charlotte community through his family’s Heartest Yard foundation since retiring.

The 44th Annual Sports Emmy Awards ceremony is set to take place at Lincoln Center in New York on Monday, May 22.
