Exclusive: Greg Olsen calls out Adam Schefter over Travis Kelce mistake...
As Kelce continues to dominate headlines thanks to his play for the Chiefs and his relationship with Taylor Swift, Schefter commented on X that the Kansas City star was the only tight end in NFL history to have more than two straight 1,000-yard receiving seasons.

Olsen, now a Fox broadcaster, responded with a GIF of himself in a Carolina Panthers uniform with a look of disbelief and the caption, “[I’d] like a word.”

Olsen was referring to his three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons with Carolina from 2014-16.

“[I] stand corrected,” Schefter posted in response. “Greg Olsen had three straight 1,000-yard receiving seasons, the second longest streak in NFL history for any tight end behind Travis Kelce.”

Kelce, 34, entered Sunday’s regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Chargers needing just 16 yards to get to the 1,000-yard mark for the eighth consecutive year, which is, indeed, a record.

However, the Chiefs ruled Kelce out for the game, calling it a “coaching decision,” as Kansas City was already locked into the No. 3 seed after clinching the AFC West last week.

Kelce’s career high for yards, 1,416, came in the 2020 season.

Olsen had a career-best 1,104 in 2015 for Carolina during Cam Newton’s MVP season, in which the Panthers reached the Super Bowl.
