Ed Dickson’s Seahawks debut couldn’t have gone better
Ed Dickson didn’t get his first game action as a Seahawks player until Week 8 in Detroit, but he made it well worth the wait for both him and his teammates.
Coming off a quad injury before training camp, the veteran tight end had been patiently putting in the work to get healthy and return to action.
Talking about his debut in Tuesday’s Player Spotlight on Danny, Dave and Moore, it was clear that it didn’t take long to shake off those initial nerves.
“[It] felt good being back with my guys, with teammates – little nervous, so to say. Anxious is a better word, to get that first hit, that first play,” he said. “Once I got in, it settled down – all so familiar.”
Dickson caught both his targets against the Lions on Sunday, making the most of his opportunities for 54 yards and a score. His touchdown, which was his first reception as a Seahawk, came on a perfectly placed ball from Russell Wilson from 12 yards out into the corner of the end zone.
Dickson also managed to get free for a wide open 42-yard catch-and-run early in the third quarter. And while Dickson wishes he “would have done a couple more moves in the open field” to squeeze out a few more yards, apparently a spin move was out of the question.
“I don’t think I have that in my repertoire,” he joked.
