Edward "Charles" Dillon Jr. (born January 30, 1986) is a former American professional football player. Dillon played his college career at Ventura College for his freshman and sophomore year, before transferring to Washington State University for junior and senior years.

Professional career[edit]

Indianapolis Colts[edit]

Dillon went undrafted in 2008, but shortly after the draft, he received a call from the Indianapolis Colts telling him that he had been signed.

Dillon had impressed the Colts, however his season came to an end fast due to an injury. He was placed on injured reserve and was cut by Indianapolis later on that season.

Green Bay Packers[edit]

The Green Bay Packers invited Dillon to attend training camp. On September 4, 2010, Dillon was released from the Packers.

Spokane Shock[edit]

In 2009, Dillon played arena football for the Spokane Shock of the af2 (the Arena Football League's former minor league). Dillon helped the Shock reach and win ArenaCup X with a victory over the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pioneers, winning 74–27.

Dillon signed with the Shock for the 2010 AFL season. However, while he was on the Packers' roster during training camp, the Shock placed him on its roster as 2010 AFL league exempt.

In early 2011, Dillon re-signed with the Shock.[1]

Chicago Rush[edit]

Before the season began, Dillon was traded to the Chicago Rush. In 2011, he caught 96 passes for 1,200 yards and 24 touchdowns.[2]
