Panthers plan to involve TEs more in offense

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - Coach Ron Rivera says the Carolina Panthers plan to use their tight ends more in the passing game this season.

The Panthers added free agent Ed Dickson this offseason to go along with Greg Olsen, giving them a pair of receiving threats at tight end similar to what they had in Rivera's first season in 2011 with Olsen and Jeremy Shockey.

Rivera says ''You want that double threat.''

Rivera says the Panthers were a little too predictable when the team paired Olsen with Ben Hartsock, who was known almost exclusively for his run-blocking ability.

Dickson has shown the potential to be a big-time option in the passing game, catching 54 passes for 528 yards and five touchdowns in 2011 with the Baltimore Ravens.
