Ravens Reach 3-Year Deal With 3rd Round TE Ed Dickson

The Baltimore Ravens announced that they have agreed to terms with third-round tight end Ed Dickson.

Dickson has agreed to a three-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Dickson caught 124 passes for 1,557 yards and 12 touchdowns during his career at the University of Oregon, earning first-team All-Pac 10 honors after the 2009 season after being named second-team all-Pac 10 in 2008.

Dickson caught more passes for more yards than any other tight end in school history.

The 6-4, 250-pound Dickson was the 70th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, and is one of two tight ends the Ravens picked this season. Heading into training camp, Dickson is the #2 tight end behind Todd Heap, and will compete with fourth-round pick Dennis Pitta for playing time. Dickson is a more polished player, giving him an edge in the competition.

Dickson is the fifth of the Ravens' seven picks in this year's draft to come to terms on a contract. Second-round picks Terrence Cody and Sergio Kindle are the two remaining unsigned draft choices.
