SPARTANBURG, S. Adidas Stan Smith Femme Pas Cher .C. -- Ron Rivera said the Carolina Panthers plan to use their tight ends more in the passing game this season. The Panthers added free agent Ed Dickson this off-season to go along with Greg Olsen, giving them a pair of receiving options at tight end similar to what they had in Riveras first season in 2011 with Olsen and Jeremy Shockey. "Absolutely," Rivera said when asked if the moved was designed to replicate three years ago. "You want that double threat." The Panthers became a little too predictable when the team paired Olsen with Ben Hartsock, who was known almost exclusively for his run-blocking ability. "The way it was (last season) its like heres one guy who is your primary blocker and heres one guy thats your primary receiver," Rivera said. "Now we bring Ed Dickson in and you say, Which one is which?" Rivera likes that both Dickson and Olsen are versatile enough to block and still be downfield threats. Dickson has shown good speed in training camp and has the potential to be a big-time option in the passing game. He caught 54 passes for 528 yards and five touchdowns in 2011 with the Baltimore Ravens. Dicksons numbers dropped off the past two years -- he averaged 23 receptions for 249 yards and one touchdown per season -- but the Panthers view the fourth-year veteran as a big pickup. Rivera believes Dickson will be a perfect complement to Olsen when the Panthers go to two-receiver sets because it will create mismatches. It worked in 2011. Olsen and Shockey combined for 82 receptions for 995 yards and nine touchdowns that season -- Cam Newtons first at quarterback. The Panthers didnt re-sign Shockey in 2012, instead adding Hartsock to the mix. Hartsock didnt catch a pass last season. Olsen, however, had a career season with a team-high 73 receptions for 816 yards and six touchdowns. "We are trying to do those things that we did when we were first here," said Rivera, who is entering his fourth season with the Panthers. "Last year Olsen led us in receptions, so what can we do if we have another vertical threat tight end?" Dickson signed a one-year deal with the Panthers in part because he could play with Newton and Olsen. "It was an easy decision for me," Dickson said. Carolina also added free agent tight end Mike McNeill, who is primarily a blocker, to go along with young prospects Brandon Williams and D.C. Jefferson. Rivera said earlier in camp that tight end could be the toughest position on the team to make cuts this summer. "We have five tight ends we really like," Rivera said. The Panthers are also hoping the tight end position eases some of the pain of parting ways with their top four wide receivers this off-season. Carolina released Steve Smith, the franchises career leader in receptions, yards receiving and touchdowns, and allowed Brandon LaFell, Ted Ginn Jr. and Domenik Hixon to leave via free agency. Carolina added free agents Jerricho Cotchery, Jason Avant and Tiquan Underwood and drafted Kelvin Benjamin from Florida State, but the group has been an easy target for critics who feel the team didnt do enough to restock and doesnt have a legitimate No. 1 receiver. "Its kind of been the story line of the off-season," Olsen said. "Any time the Panthers have come up thats kind of been the first comment made by everybody. I think guys are just kind of tired of it. I think we feel confident about our group." Adidas Superstar Blanche . A good season, yes, but as star running back Jon Cornish pointed out, people will remember this years Grey Cup winner before they remember Calgarys 14-4 record in the regular season.

The brothers from Belarus played two lacklustre games after travelling to Europe before each having their tournament end abruptly against Canada on Tuesday.SAINT-ETIENNE, France -- Saint-Etiennes bid for a Champions League spot stalled as it drew 0-0 with Rennes in the French league on Friday. The hosts struggled to create chances, although Saint-Etienne winger Romain Hamouma headed in a cross from Benoit Tremoulinas in the 64th minute but the goal was disallowed for offside. Paris Saint-Germain tops the standings with a 10-point lead over Monaco. Saint-Etienne stayed in fourth place, six points behind Lille which has a game in hand. "We must protect that fourth place," Saint-Etienne defender Moustapha Bayal Sall said. "We must not lose our remaining matches." Rennes is nine points above the relegation zone and will face Guingamp in the French Cup final on May 3 after edging Angers 3-2 on Tuesday. "Its a very important point," Rennes midfielder Jean Makoun said. Adidas Superstar Rose. "It brings us closer to safety." Saint-Etienne dominated possession but struggled to create clear-cut chances until forward Max-Alain Gradel pounced on a poor clearance from the Rennes defence in the 44th to send a shot straight into goalkeeper Benoit Costils arms. Mevlut Erding escaped marking in the 51st to control a loose ball but Costil tipped his low strike around the post. "We certainly lacked accuracy in the final ball because we made numerous crosses," Saint-Etienne captain Loic Perrin said. On Sunday, its: Monaco vs. Nice; Bastia vs. Ajaccio; Bordeaux vs. Guingamp; Lorient vs. Montpellier; Reims vs. Sochaux; Valenciennes vs. Nantes; and Marseille vs. Lille. On Wednesday, PSG hosts Evian and Lyon visits Toulouse. Cheap China Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China China NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
