The Carolina Panthers have reportedly agreed to terms with tight end Ed Dickson to a one-year contract. Panthers sign free agent tight end Ed Dickson to a one-year deal, per league source. — Joe Person (@josephperson) April 10, 2014 Dickson, 26, is coming off back-to-back disappointing seasons—hauling in just 46 catches for 498 yards and touchdown in 29 games (25 starts) in 2012-13, but he did put up pretty good numbers in 2011. The 6-4, 255-pound tight end looks to be in the driver’s seat for No. 2 duties at the position behind Greg Olsen with the Panthers. Given the team’s current dearth of pass catchers, Dickson should see plenty of opportunities to prove himself with a new change of scenery. A 2010 third round pick (No. 70 overall) out of Oregon, Dickson racked up 111 receptions for 1,178 yards and seven touchdowns through 60 games (44 starts) over the last four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens.
