Olsen served as the booth analyst this week for FOX’s coverage of the Arizona Cardinals-New York Giants game. He worked alongside play-by-play man Kenny Albert with Lindsay Czarniak serving as the field reporter. Obviously, it’s a rare occurrence for an active player to join the booth in an capacity during the season.
Olsen was on his bye week with the Panthers and FOX likes him so much, he’s been given an assignment to keep his broadcasting skills fresh.
It seems that Olsen is readying himself for a career in broadcasting now and is seizing every opportunity thrown his way even if it collides with his bye week, which at this stage of his career is a welcome respite.
