Lions signed TE Dorin Dickerson.
It's a sign the Lions don't expect Tony Scheffler (concussion) back any time soon. Dickerson will likely slide in at No. 3 on the depth chart behind Brandon Pettigrew and Joseph Fauria, though the Lions also have rookie Michael Williams.

The Bills have moved Dorin Dickerson back to tight end.
It's a smart move by Dickerson -- who personally requested the change -- because the Bills are weak at tight end. He was initially slated to practice at wide receiver under the new coaching staff. Dickerson also plays H-back.

Bills re-signed TE/WR Dorin Dickerson.
Dickerson broke the news on his Twitter account, which was good enough for the Bills' official website. The H-Back was a minuscule part of the offense last season, catching just nine passes in 11 games. Teams will be forever intrigued by his athleticism, but Dickerson's role should remain small in 2013.

WGR 550 Buffalo "wouldn't be surprised at all" if H-Back Dorin Dickerson cracks the Bills' 53-man roster.
Dickerson impressed as he racked up first-team reps throughout the Bills' offseason program, leading both WGR and the Buffalo Times to give him a fighting chance of earning a roster spot. However, even if Dickerson finally finds a home, his offensive role is expected to be limited. Per the Times, coach Chan Gailey is "considering" reintegrating the H-Back - a tight end who lines up off the line of scrimmage - into his offense.

Bills H-Back Dorin Dickerson has seen a "heck of a lot of" reps with the first-team offense at OTAs.
Dickerson was impressive at the 2010 combine, but wasn't selected until the seventh round by the Texans. He's also had stops with the Steelers and Patriots, but finally has a shot to make a 53-man roster as the Bills' third tight end. He won't make a fantasy impact.

Bills signed FB Dorin Dickerson, formerly of the Patriots.
Though Dickerson is usually considered a receiver or tight end, the Bills listed him as a fullback, suggesting he'll be an H-back type in Chan Gailey's spread offense. Dickerson will have to excel on special teams to make the club.

Free agent TE/WR Dorin Dickerson will work out for the Bills this week.
The former seventh-round pick hasn't appeared in a game since 2010, and spent last season on the Steelers' practice squad injured reserve. Teams have never figured out what to do with Dickerson's 6-foot-2, 227 pound frame, but it's possible athlete-friendly Bills coach Chan Gailey will see something he likes.

Steelers placed TE/WR Dorin Dickerson on practice squad/injured reserve.
A report, more like speculation, surfaced Thursday that Dickerson had "quit" on the team, but he just got injured. He's out for the season and will try to latch on elsewhere next year, probably on a reserve/future contract.
