It was just a few hours ago when we told you that the Bears had put TE Greg Olsen on the trading block, as agent Drew Rosenhaus tweeted that Chicago was willing to be very “reasonable” in who they got for swapping Olsen.

The Panthers have taken the Bears up on the deal.

The Chicago Tribune is reporting that Olsen is on his way to Carolina in exchange for a player (not likely named Steve Smith) and for an undisclosed draft pick.

Olsen caught 41 passes last year for 404 yards and five touchdowns, and he’ll join a crowded tight end group in Carolina with Jeremy Shockey and Ben Hartsock already on the roster.

Makes sense as "50 cent - Cutler" ( only plays two quarters in NFC Champ game) will now  have to learn Martz system as oppossed to checking it down to Olsen...look for Forte to play a bigger role.

Olsen is better served to get away from the Martz system. Too bad he went to a team without a proven QB.

The Bears trade away their best TE since Ditka and they just get a pick?  It better be at least a 3rd rounder.  Anything else would be emBEARassing.  Picking up Roy Williams will not make this any better either.

Greg Olsen for Steve Smith would have made perfect sense, but this ??  The Bears got squat for a very good tight end, with all kinds of potential ??  I just dont get it........  What happen to getting Cutler more weapons..  ??  The Bears brain trust strikes again.....
