Greg Olsen reminded by DK Metcalf he is “not a spring chicken anymore”

The Chicago Bears denounced Brian Urlacher's post on Instagram about the NBA protests surrounding the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha.

While learning his new teammates, Greg Olsen is remembering a former teammate.

The Seahawks tight end played with Terrence Metcalf with the Bears. Metcalf was an offensive lineman who played from 2002-08. Olsen, 35, played in Chicago from 2007-10, overlapping with Metcalf for two seasons.

Olsen now plays with Metcalf’s son, DK, in Seattle.

“Every time someone brings it up, it just reminds me that I’m not a spring chicken anymore,” Olsen told NFL Media. “I’ve been doing this a long time.

“I got to catch up with DK’s dad, Terrence, just a couple weeks ago. DK and I ran some routes before we started back up and his dad was in town, and we got to visit and spend some time. . . . It’s a pretty cool thing. I take some pride in it, knowing that it’s not easy to stick around in this league a long time, but it’s definitely a reminder that sometimes it’s hard keeping up with these young guys.”
