PLAYERS: Dennis Dixon
Steelers_dixon_passes_9070
Geoff Mosher of CSN Philly reports that there are “strong indications” that the Eagles are prepared to pursue signing QB Dennis Dixon who is currently on the Ravens practice squad. Philadelphia would have to wait until after the season to try to lure Dixon away from the Ravens. Mosher writes that “all signs point to [Chip] Kelly having his man by next week.” Dixon played under Kelly during his time at Oregon, so there’s a pretty obvious connection here. It would make sense for Kelly to bring in someone who’s familiar with his offensive system, even if it’s unlikely that he would be their long-term solution at quarterback.   The post “Strong Indications” That The Eagles Are Looking To Add QB Dennis Dixon appeared first on NFL Trade Rumors -.
