The Seattle Seahawks addressed one of their offseason needs by signing tight end Ed Dickson to a three-year contract.
While Dickson isn't intended to be a replacement for Jimmy Graham Semyon Varlamov Jersey , he is the kind of tight end Seattle needs if it's going to return to an offense that controls the game with the run. Dickson is an excellent blocker who also was a serviceable pass-catching option during his time in Baltimore and Carolina.
Dickson had 30 receptions and one touchdown last season with the Panthers. He spent four seasons with the Panthers after four seasons in Baltimore.
It's also a return home for Dickson, who played collegiately at Oregon. Dickson's contract, which was announced Friday Youth Darnell Nurse Jersey , is worth up to $14 million and includes a $2.6 million signing bonus.
Seattle also formally announced the signing of linebacker Barkevious Mingo.
Los Angeles Chargers defensive tackle Corey Liuget underwent offseason foot surgery, but head coach Anthony Lynn expects him back for training camp.
Liuget, who is suspended for the first four games of the upcoming season for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs Valtteri Filppula Jersey , did not participate in the first day of the team’s mandatory minicamp Tuesday.
”We’re waiting for his foot to feel better. He had the surgery, he’s coming along fine,” Lynn said.
Liuget was limited to 12 games last season because of a toe injury Sean Monahan Jersey , finishing with 15 tackles and 1.5 sacks. Liuget also missed the final five games of the 2015 season because of a foot injury.
