Tight end is the one skill position on offense the Falcons could use a boost. Austin Hooper led Atlanta's tight ends with 526 yards on 49 receptions and three touchdowns in 2017.
Although Dickson doesn't have a jaw-dropping track record, he could form a solid one-two punch with Hooper. In 2017, Dickson hauled in 47 passes for 437 yards and a score while averaging a career-high 14.6 yards per catch. Hooper averaged 10.7 yards per reception last season.
With Ryan, Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu and Devonta Freeman, the Falcons don't need a Rob Gronkowski-type difference-maker at tight end. Instead, they just need a reliable pass-catcher who can block. The 6'4", 255-pound Dickson certainly fits the profile and has Atlanta looking to keep him in the NFC South.
