Super Bowl winner Ed Dickson retires as a Raven
Former Ravens Ed Dickson has retired as a Raven, the Ravens announced today. Dickson had a 10-year career after being drafted by the Ravens in the third round (70th overall) in the 2010 draft. Dickson last played for the Seattle Seahawks in 2018.
Dickson spent the first four years of his career with the Ravens and was a big part in the Ravens Super Bowl XLVII win.
Dickson’s second year was by fair his best season, with five touchdowns and 54 reception with over 500 receiving yards. Dickson later became more of a blocking tight end for the Ravens when Dennis Pitta emerged as one of quarterback Joe Flacco’s favorite targets.
Dickson would spend 2014 to 2017 with the Carolina Panthers. One of the Ravens mistakes was not resigning Dickson, while Pitta was great he was seldom on the field after his big contract after repeated hip injuries. When Pitta was out, the Joe Flacco lead Ravens were missing tight end depth with Dickson no longer in the picture.
For Dickson’s career he had 15 receiving touchdowns, 190 receptions and 2,128 total yards.
