Panthers Sign Former Ravens TE Dickson

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The Panthers have signed unrestricted free agent tight end Ed Dickson to a one-year contract.

Carolina announced the move Thursday, but financial terms were not released.

The 6-foot-4, 255-pound Dickson started 44 games and played in 60 during his four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. He has 111 career receptions for 1,178 yards and seven touchdowns.

Dickson played in eight playoff games with five starts and helped the Ravens win the Super Bowl two years ago.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera says in a release Dickson "provides experienced depth at the tight end position" behind starter Greg Olsen.

Last season Dickson started 14 games and caught 25 catches for 273 yards and one touchdown.

His best season came in 2011 when he started 16 games and caught 54 passes for 528 yards with five touchdowns.
