Ravens morning links: Ed Dickson signs elsewhere, Logan Thomas meets with franchise

Read what other Ravens news sources are saying about the Baltimore Ravens.

Once Owen Daniels signed with the Ravens, it was clear Ed Dickson's time in Baltimore was over.

That became official when Dickson signed a one-year deal with the Carolina Panthers on Thursday, reported The Baltimore Sun. Dickson possessed a ton of potential but was never able to live up to it during his tenure with the Ravens.

After catching 54 passes for 528 yards and five touchdowns in 2011, Dickson only managed 46 catches for 498 yards and one touchdown the past two seasons.

The Ravens' quest to find a backup quarterback continues.

On Friday, The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson reported that the Ravens met with former Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas. Thomas displayed flashes at Virginia Tech but never reached that next level he was expected to get to after a breakout sophomore season in 2011.

As a senior in 2013, Thomas threw for 2,907 yards, 16 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

We all know the Ravens have a pressing need for another safety.

But given that the position appears to be top-heavy this year, the Ravens may not get an ideal choice at their picking position. Regardless, Ravens director of college scouting Joe Hortiz spoke to BaltimoreRavens.com's Garrett Downing about this year's group of safeties.
