Dennis Dixon Signs Deal With EaglesBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Quarterbacks Monday, February 18th, 2013
Former Oregon Ducks quarterback and more recently Baltimore Ravens practice squad quarterback, Dennis Dixon, signed his contract today with the Birds and is now officially on the Eagles roster. He’s definitely a believer in the Chip Kelly system.
“If everybody buys into what Chip Kelly is selling, the sky’s the limit,” Dixon told reporters earlier today.
The quarterback, who was drafted by the Steelers and started a few games there, plans on competing for the Eagles starting job.
“I just want to be able to put my best foot forward and let the chips fall where they may,” Dixon said. “From my understanding, the job is open. It’ll be a very competitive nature around here. It’s pretty much open, so may the best man win.”
Dixon isn’t considered much of a threat to Michael Vick and Nick Foles, but at this point, he knows Kelly’s system more than any other quarterback on the roster.
