    Despite down year, Ed Dickson wants to re-sign with Panthers

    Tight end Ed Dickson would like to re-sign with the Panthers, he told The Charlotte Observer. Dickson is a free agent after signing a one-year, $795,000 contract with the Panthers last offseason. "I'd love to be a Panther. I'm on the record to say that I'd love to be a Panther," Dickson said. "I love everything about the program -- from the top to the bottom. The business part takes over right now, and hopefully I'm back playing with (quarterback) Cam (Newton)." Dickson wants to return to Carolina despite having one of the worst statistical seasons of his career. He totaled 10 catches for 115 yards and one touchdown in 16 games. The Panthers signed Dickson last offseason hoping his presence would lead to more two tight end sets like when the Panthers used Greg Olsen and Jeremy Shockey in 2011. "At the end of the season it started to look like what we wanted to," Dickson said. "We don't want to wait until next season to say turn it on at the end of the season. "The sky's the limit for this group. This tight end group is one of the best in the league."

    Many Panthers pitch in with snags to Week 14 victory

    Seven Panthers caught three passes or less, though that was certainly enough for them to chip in to a blowout defeat of host New Orleans on Sunday. The most significant made by one of the minor characters was that of running back Fozzy Whittaker, who helped his team pile on with a 26-yard touchdown catch and run late in the third quarter. Also pitching in from the air were Philly Brown (3-42), Mike Tolbert (2-34), Ed Dickson (1-10), Jerricho Cotchery (1-9) and Brenton Bersin (1-9).
