The deal was announced on Thursday but terms were not immediately known.
Analysis: Olsen went to his first Pro Bowl in 2014 after catching 84 passes for 1.008 yards, both new franchise records for a tight end. He finished the regular season third among tight ends in receptions and had six touchdowns. He had three 100-yard receiving games last season, the most ever by a Carolina tight end. Olsen, 26, was acquired in a trade from Chicago in 2011 and has played in 126 consecutive regular season games, the second-longest active streak among tight ends.
