He heard about it all off season. He blew out the competition at the combine, his expected draft position flew as high as number 14, but then on draft day come the Bears pick he was sitting their for us.
Coaches, players and media alike hyped him all year, he was going to give Rex Grossman an outlet, he was going to open up the middle of the field.
Then he went down and hasn't played in either of the first two games. Could this game be the one that Greg Olsen finally makes his NFL debut?
If it is up to him the answer is yes.
He says the knee is fine and he is ready to go. Obviously, team docs and coaches might have something to say about that, but Olsen no longer wants to sit on the pine and watch this offense struggle when he might do something to help it.
