Friends of the Bears TE say he was not happy about the hiring of offensive coordinator Mike Martz and quietly sent his agent Drew Rosenhaus into “trade request” mode. Now it appears the Bears may have some takers in the Arizona Cardinals or New England Patriots.
The question is can the Bears trade Olsen man for man before some players like Antrel Rolle hit the free agent market? Or is Olsen even enough for a 2nd round pick come April?
As soon as anyone mentions the Cardinals, you can’t help but think of disgruntled wide receiver Anquan Boldin. The Bears supposedly offered the Cardinals a second round pick last year but the Cardinals wanted more. Now the Cards are supposedly even more motivated to move Boldin, who’s entering the last year of his contract. It will be interesting to see if Olsen will be enough to pry the talented wideout from Arizona and get Jay Cutler and Mike Martz and new toy.
In my informal poll, more than half of respondents think that Mad Scientist Martz needs to adapt his offense around the personnel on the team while about 25% think Olsen should get going if the Bears could get a second round pick for him.
