Spring represents new beginnings, out with the old and in with the new. And Carolina Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman took spring cleaning very seriously in 2014 when it came to his team’s receiving options.Every wide receiver or tight end not named Greg Olsen who had caught a pass in 2013 was thrown out like last year’s trash, with some like Brandon LaFell going to New...
Even with a healthier salary cap situation, everything won’t necessarily work out for general manager Dave Gettleman and the Panthers. Carolina, obviously, won’t be the only team shopping for talent.Unfortunately, they can always run into that one kid at the toy store. That one kid that’s quicker to the punch and grabs the last of the coveted toy you persistently begged your...

Panther fans have been patiently waiting for some free agents signings and were mostly...

Aditi Kinkhabwala of the NFL Network reports that the Ravens have agreed to terms with veteran TE Owen Daniels.
Th Ravens were reportedly in talks with Daniels and free agent Ed Dickson in recent weeks, but this move is a pretty good indication that Dickson won’t be back in Baltimore next year.
Baltimore hired former Texans HC Gary Kubiak to run their offense, so the addition...

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...

No position on the Ravens this upcoming year may look more different than the tight end position, as the Ravens entire depth chart there are all unrestricted free agents. Rumors are awash that Dennis Pitta is primed to cash in on a larger deal elsewhere, and the Ravens may look to move on from Ed Dickson and Dallas Clark.
Let’s take a look at some of the potential options the Ravens...
The tight end position is becoming more and more important in today’s NFL and unfortunately the Ravens may need a new one. Dennis Pitta is likely to come back but there is that chance that he won’t. Ed Dickson is also in question. Question for Baltimore is do they go elsewhere for a proven tight end or explore the draft. There are some very good names coming out of the college...

Every player at the Scouting Combine will meet several teams in the next few days, but it’s interesting to see the Ravens and Patriots are giving consideration to a tight end prospect...
The tight end position has been going through an evolution of sorts in the recent years. A tight end has never been as dominant in the passing game as it has the last few years or so. Names like Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, Jimmy Smithm and yes, even Dennis Pitta have been part of a near-revolution, if you will, of the position.
That last name, in particular, carries the most...
