Former Ravens TE Ed Dickson is in talks with the Panthers, and with
twitter on talking with the Panthers.
The former Raven and Oregon Duck TE is a free agent and might come to
Carolina, with a few internet reports suggesting a signing is likely.
6'5, 255, with 4.59 speed at combine, Dickson was a 3rd rounder in 2010.
He started the full 2011 season, with 54 receptions and 5 TDs. His
production and number of starts dropped in the following two years,
catching 21 and 25 passes respectively, with one score last year and
none in '12.
Dickson gets high marks for his blocking, and he has good speed. His
main inconsistency comes in receiving, but he can still be a threat.
If he does come to Carolina, expect him to take the Y tight end spot, on
the line, more often, with Greg Olsen moving more. Olsen can do either,
but Dickson is the better blocker, and generally, Olsen has relinquished
his spot on the line with 2 TE in the game.
