TE Dickson Wins Good Guy Award

Carolina Panthers tight end Ed Dickson is the 2017 winner of the Tom Berry Good Guy Award, which annually honors the Panthers player who was most helpful to the media.


Dickson, in his fourth season with the Panthers, has consistently been among the most friendly and accessible players in the locker room. While a number of players designate one day to meet with the media each week, Dickson makes himself available for nearly all of the open locker room periods when interviews are conducted.


Dickson, who replaced an injured Greg Olsen as the No. 1 tight end for two months, caught 30 passes for 437 yards and one touchdown during the regular season.


The Good Guy award, presented by the Carolinas chapter of the Pro Football Writers of America, is named for a longtime columnist and Panthers beat writer for the High Point (N.C.) Enterprise who died at the start of the 2009 season.


Dickson joins a list of former winners that includes current teammates Olsen, Kurt Coleman and Captain Munnerlyn.
