Meet Tight End Richard Dickson, the undrafted rookie free agent, who signed with the Lions.
Dickson was the all time leading TE at LSU where he posted 90 receptions for 952 yards and nine TD’s.
When Dickson and agent Albert Elias were considering offers from several NFL teams, the Lions offered an innovative package that was so attractive, Dickson jumped on board.
At 6’3” and 240 lbs, Dickson was thought by pro scouts to be too small to play TE in the NFL.
The Lions, however, had other plans for him.
The Lions proposed moving Dickson into a Full Back roll as well as a TE roll. Perfect.
Richard Dickson is a workaholic and has a skill set that the Lions covet—Good backfield blocker with good hands.
Mathew Stafford watched him play in the SEC and liked the fit. The depth that Dickson adds at two positions plus his obvious value on Special Teams is just the right combination that makes him a value addition.
