After being selected in the third round of the 2010 draft — ahead of tight ends Dennis Pitta and Jimmy Graham — much was expected of Ed Dickson in a Ravens uniform.  Possessing the athleticism that is coveted at the position, there was more excitement for the Oregon product than there was Pitta. However, now that we stand at the beginning of the 2014 season, Ravens fans changed both their expectations and their sentiments.  Dickson and Pitta’s paths are all the more accentuated when you consider that the Ravens recently gave Pitta a 5-year extension while Dickson still sits on the open market. However, a recent report by The Sun’s Aaron Wilson claims that the Ravens extended an offer to Ed Dickson. Yet, that is all the report says.  There are no details as to when the Ravens extended the offer or what the terms of the offer were.  It seems likely that if the Ravens offer was for multiple years, it would be at a relatively low price.  Dickson has had a lot of trouble catching the football — to say the least — and Ravens fans’ patience has worn somewhat thin with the mercurial athlete.  However, he has performed well in a blocking capacity, and there is always the chance that he figures out that whole catching thing down the line.  Suddenly, you’ve got yourself a pretty good tight end, if that’s the case. It’s possible that in order for that to happen, there will need to be a change of scenery.  Dickson also has an offer from the Jacksonville Jaguars, and other teams apparently have interest in the 6’4″ target.  Concurrently, many Ravens fans would prefer if the organization pursued former Houston Texan, Owen Daniels, and that they reunite Gary Kubiak with his former starting tight end.  Perhaps the price tag on Daniels is heftier than Dickson, and they are still trying to fit pieces within their budget. But again, that all depends on the terms of that offer.  All we know now, is that in some capacity, the Ravens have interest in keeping Dickson in purple in black.
