    He was 1st Team All ACC on a team without a QB. It's unfortunate that the most important year of his college career featured terrible QBs but anyone who watched him play through his career knew he was a damn good player.
    Agreed. Plus we know pass catches are valued much more than pure blockers in today's NFL.

    If the Ravens aren't happy with Dickson at around preseason week#3, I could totally see this happening. They will need about $3.3mil in cap space.

    Celek is a very good TE. Not sure what the cost to get him would be considering Maclin's injury and the fact that they will probably release Cooper.

    The Eagles have two good, young TEs and this is certainly looking like a "rebuilding" year for them. I'm thinking maybe a 5th rounder could do the trick.

    Chip Kelly loves two-TE sets and a lot of what he does on offense is built around that. I don't see the Eagles letting go any of their top three guys (Casey, Ertz, Celek). That leaves Clay Harbor (less than 200 yards last year) or some rookies - in other words nobody better than what the Ravens probably already have on their roster.

    Nice little article. TE is in Dickson's hands. Good point about Shiancoe; by process of elimination, Bajema is the team's best blocking TE.
