Seahawks Sign Tight End Ed Dickson

The Seahawks signed veteran tight end Ed Dickson Friday.

The Seahawks signed tight end Ed Dickson Friday, adding a durable veteran who has missed only four games during his eight-year NFL career.

Dickson, who played at the University of Oregon, spent the first four years of his career in Baltimore, then the last four seasons in Carolina, and has not missed a game since the 2012 season.

Dickson had one of his more productive years as a pass-catcher in 2017, gaining 437 yards on 30 catches while averaging a career-best 14.6 yards per catch. Dickson has been known as a quality blocking tight end throughout his career, and was Pro Football Focus' top-ranked pass-blocking tight end in 2017. For his career, Dickson has caught 178 passes for 1,985 yards and 12 touchdowns. Dickson gives the Seahawks needed depth at tight end with last year's starter, Jimmy Graham, having signed with the Green Bay Packers. Tight end Luke Willson is currently a free agent.
