Bears | Martz insists Olsen will be part of offensive scheme

Vaughn McClure and Brad Biggs, of the Chicago Tribune, report Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz said TE Greg Olsen, who led the team with 60 receptions in 2009, will be an important part of his scheme. Martz has been criticized for not using his tight ends in the passing game. "Like all the positions, you take a look at what you have at tight end and who that guy is and what they can do and then you go from there,'' Martz said. "In the past, we've always had these big, physical tight ends who really we tried to utilize in the running game and as pass blockers and then as wide receivers. Greg is different. When you can get … him matched up on linebackers and safeties, it's going to be a mismatch. And then his ability to still stand in there and slug it out, he's a complete player from every respect at that position.''
