It looks former UConn Huskies RB Andre Dixon will get another chance to play professional football. This time around though it looks like it'll be north of the border in the Canadian Football League. Congratulations to Andre Dixon for signing with the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League.I am really happy... fb.me/1XiJZNrNW — Gino Caro (@GinoCaroSAID) May 15, 2013 Training camp begins for the BC Lions in two weeks and Dixon will get a chance to show his stuff. He'll compete with three other running backs for a chance to make the team. Dixon last played professionally in 2011 for the Sacramento Mountain Lions of the now defunct United Football League (UFL).
