Philadelphia Eagles Sign Dennis Dixon To Two-Year Deal

The Philadelphia Eagles aren’t being very subtle about the direction the offense is going under new head coach Chip Kelly. As reported by SportsCenter on Thursday afternoon, the Eagles signed Dennis Dixon off the Baltimore Ravens practice squad on a two-year deal.

Dixon spent 2012-2013 with the Super Bowl champs, earning a ring, after spending four years as a Pittsburgh Steeler (where he also won a Super Bowl). An interesting fact: Dixon has thrown 1 TD pass in his career, and won two Super Bowl rings. The Philadelphia Eagles as a franchise have 1470 TDs passing with zero Super Bowls.

Dixon played under Kelly in Oregon for several years, throwing for 2100 yards and 21 touchdowns while rushing for 600 yards and 9 touchdowns in his senior season. He won Pac-10 Offensive Player of the Year honors despite tearing his ACL late in the season.

The team has remarked that Dixon will compete with incumbents Michael Vick, Nick Foles, and Trent Edwards for a roster spot and possibly the starting job despite having started only three games in his career.
