Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Ed Dickson is a "down-field catcher, as well."
Carroll praised Dickson as an "all-around blocker," but he also said the tight end can be useful as a receiving option. "He's a really good athlete," Carroll said. "He's kind of been overshadowed with [Greg] Olsen there at the Panthers, but he's always been a productive football player and a really good all-around ballplayer." Dickson will have some streaming appeal if he sticks atop the depth chart, but Seattle could look for a better passing-game weapon in the draft. Apr 2 - 11:59 AM

Seahawks signed TE Ed Dickson, formerly of the Panthers, to a three-year contract.

The deal is worth "up to" $14 million with the first year fully guaranteed. With Jimmy Graham gone to Green Bay and No. 2 TE Luke Willson still a free agent and visiting the Jaguars, Dickson is currently the Seahawks' starter. Dickson blocked on over 56% of his snaps last season in Carolina and composed a 31-440-1 receiving line. He'll help shore up the Seattle run game.

Free agent TE Ed Dickson will visit the Seahawks.

With only Nick Vannett and Tyrone Swoopes on the roster, the Seahawks are searching high and low on the open market as they look to replace Jimmy Graham. They have also hosted Austin Seferian-Jenkins. 30-year-old Dickson is a blocker who can catch passes in a pinch.
Mar 14 - 3:19 PM

ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports the Falcons have expressed "strong" interest in free agent TE Ed Dickson.

Atlanta is looking for more of a blocking option to pair with Austin Hooper following the release of Levine Toilolo. Dickson would certainly fit the bill. The tight end has also been linked with the Dolphins, and ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the Packers are interested as well.

The Dolphins are interested in free agent TE Ed Dickson.

With Julius Thomas on the chopping block and Anthony Fasano's contract up, the Dolphins are left with MarQueis Gray and AJ Derby atop their tight end depth chart. Dickson has been a serviceable No. 2 tight end, but he's not a starting solution. The 30-year-old averaged 18.4 catches over the last five seasons.
Mar 7 - 6:39 PM

Ed Dickson snagged two-of-three targets for 22 yards Sunday in the Panthers' Week 17 loss to the Falcons.

Dickson put himself on the streaming radar with a magnificent performance against the Lions in Week 5 (five catches for a career-high 175 yards) but quickly faded and was scarcely used upon Greg Olsen’s return. Dickson scored once all year and caught just two passes (both in Sunday's finale) over his final four games. Even as a cheap punt play, Dickson won’t be an appealing DFS option for next week’s playoff opener against the Saints.

Ed Dickson caught 2-of-2 targets for 18 yards in the Panthers' Week 13 loss to the Saints.

Even with Greg Olsen (foot) back on the shelf, Dickson couldn't get anything going. Olsen seems more likely than not to return for next week's game against the Vikings, once again rendering Dickson irrelevant.
Sun, Dec 3, 2017 07:57:00 PM

Ed Dickson caught 3-of-5 targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in the Panthers' Week 10 win over the Dolphins.

Dickson's touchdown came on a laser from QB Cam Newton which he did a good job snagging out of the air. With Greg Olsen (ankle) nearing a return, Dickson isn't worth rostering going into the Panthers Week 11 bye.
Tue, Nov 14, 2017 01:09:00 AM

Ed Dickson failed to catch either of his two targets in the Week 9 win over the Falcons.

Cam Newton missed Dickson down the seam on one of them. Greg Olsen (ankle) is back practicing and nearing a return. Dickson is a weak fantasy play.
Sun, Nov 5, 2017 04:59:00 PM

Ed Dickson caught 4-of-5 targets for 24 yards in the Panthers' Week 8 win over the Bucs.

With Cam Newton struggling, Dickson had a quiet day in a great spot. Dickson has drawn at least five targets in each of his past four games, but totaled just 78 yards over the past three weeks. He'll be a fill-in TE2 until Greg Olsen (foot) comes off injured reserve.
Sun, Oct 29, 2017 05:27:00 PM

Panthers TE Ed Dickson (ankle) is active for Week 8 against the Bucs.

Dickson has settled in as a TE2, but has an excellent matchup in an awful defense that is epically banged up. Inactive for the Panthers are FB Alex Armah, DE Bryan Cox, QB Garrett Gilbert, CB LaDarius Gunter, C Ryan Kalil, OT John Theus and RB Fozzy Whittaker.
Sun, Oct 29, 2017 11:35:00 AM

Ed Dickson (ankle) is questionable for Week 8 against the Bucs.

Dickson returned to a full practice Thursday and should play Sunday. The Bucs are brutal against the pass, putting Dickson on the streaming map.
Fri, Oct 27, 2017 12:53:00 PM

Ed Dickson (ankle) returned to Panthers practice Thursday, getting in a full session.

He'll be good to go against the Bucs. Dickson has settled in as a TE2 since his hot stretch a few weeks back.
Thu, Oct 26, 2017 02:54:00 PM

Ed Dickson (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

It's the first we've heard of an ankle issue for Dickson, but he did have the joint taped after the Week 7 loss to the Bears. Consider Dickson day to day.
Wed, Oct 25, 2017 01:03:00 PM

Ed Dickson hauled in 3-of-5 targets for 18 yards in the Panthers' Week 7 loss to the Bears.

Like last week, Dickson remains a big part of the passing game, but he struggled to make much happen outside of an 11-yard catch. He will be a back-end streamer next week against the Bucs.
