Ed Dickson signs a offseason participation agreement

According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, since Ravens tight end Ed Dickson hasn’t signed his restricted free agent tender, he signed an offseason participation agreement so he can work out with his teammates during their OTA’s.

The agreement protects Dickson in case he gets injured, since he currently doesn’t have a contract.  He’ll eventually need to sign the tender, or sign an extension with the Ravens.
