Greg Olsen’s reunion with Cam Newton has us feeling some type of way


It was the moment we’ve all been waiting for.

No, it wasn’t Russell Wilson and Cam Newton meeting on the field for the first time in 2020.

Instead it was the reunion between Newton and his former teammate Greg Olsen that gave us all the warm fuzzies.

Our friends over at SNF on NBC caught this very special moment between Olsen and Newton, as they met on the field ahead of the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots Week 2 matchup, and we can’t help but feel some type of way.


A lot has changed for the dynamic duo this offseason. Olsen signed a one-year deal with the Seahawks in February while Newton succeeded Tom Brady as the Patriots starting quarterback in 2020 after signing a one-year deal with New England in July.

Olsen played nine years with the Panthers, recording 6,463 receiving yards and 39 touchdowns, many of which came from Newton. Now, the three-time Pro Bowl tight end is catching touchdowns from Russell Wilson.

There’s no denying the camaraderie between Olsen and Newton runs deep, but that doesn’t mean Olsen wants to see his former teammate come away with a victory on Sunday night.

“I talked to him the other day,” Olsen said on Wednesday. “I said ‘man, I want you to have a great year, just not in Week 2.”
