Eagles Add Dennis Dixon
Chip Kelly is reuniting with an old friend.
The Eagles have agreed to terms with Baltimore Ravens practice squad QB Dennis Dixon to a 2-year contract.
Dixon starred at QB at the University of Oregon while Kelly was the offensive coordinator under Mike Bellotti.
In his senior year Dixon posted All-American type statistics, while being named a Maxwell Award and Davey O'Brien award finalist. However, Dixon suffered a knee injury and missed the final two games of the season with a torn ACL. In that season the Ducks finished with a Sun Bowl victory against South Florida.
Dixon was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the fifth round of the 2008 draft where he started four games before joining the Baltimore Ravens practice squad.
A star athlete in Eugene, Dixon was also drafted by the Atlanta Braves in 2007 and spent time with two of their rookie league teams before returning to the Ducks.
With now two mobile quarterbacks on the roster, Nick Foles could be on the outside looking in.
