Cardinals released QB Dennis Dixon from their practice squad.
It's obviously a minor move, but one that indicates the Cards feel more confident in the health of both Carson Palmer (nerve) and Drew Stanton (head). Mon, Oct 13, 2014 03:45:00 PM

Bills released QB Dennis Dixon.

Dixon never came close to moving ahead of Jeff Tuel or Thad Lewis. They'll compete for the right to back up shaky E.J. Manuel.
Mon, Aug 25, 2014 09:38:00 AM

Dennis Dixon operated as the Bills' No. 2 quarterback in Saturday's preseason game.

The Bills are trying to find a competent backup to E.J. Manuel, who is one of the worst starters in the league. With Manuel coming off three knee procedures, Buffalo knows it needs a quality No. 2. Dixon, Thad Lewis, and Jeff Tuel have all been unimpressive. Coach Doug Marrone said the team is open to acquiring a new backup quarterback. Expect the Bills to eye the waiver wire.

Bills signed QB Dennis Dixon to the practice squad.

Dixon will serve as veteran taxi-squad insurance with the Bills going with unproven Thad Lewis in E.J. Manuel's (knee) absence. Dixon will be a candidate for promotion if Lewis face-plants and the Bills still don't trust Jeff Tuel.

The Bills are expected to sign free agent QB Dennis Dixon to their practice squad.

With E.J. Manuel (knee) sidelined, Dixon will be the No. 3 quarterback behind Thad Lewis and Jeff Tuel. Because he was active for less than six games during his four-year career with the Steelers, Dixon still has practice squad eligibility.

The Bills will work out free agent QB Dennis Dixon on Sunday.

Dixon, 28, was released by the Eagles during final cuts. The Bills are also visiting with free agent Pat White this weekend.
Sat, Oct 5, 2013 05:18:00 PM

Eagles waived or released QB Dennis Dixon, DE Everette Brown, DT Antonio Dixon, DE David King, G.J. Kinne, OT Matt Kopa, CB Trevard Lindley (waived/injured), WR Ifeanyi Momah, WR Will Murphy, C Dallas Reynolds, LB Adrian Robinson and C Matt Tennant.

One of Chip Kelly's former college quarterbacks, Dixon never elevated higher than the fourth-string, and was lucky to survive this long. Dixon hasn't appeared in a game since 2010. A 2009 second-rounder, Brown has appeared in just three games since 2010. Momah made some noise in OTAs, but struggled in camp.
Fri, Aug 30, 2013 01:21:00 PM

Eagles QB Dennis Dixon is working as a fourth-teamer at OTAs.

Nick Foles and Michael Vick are rotating first-team reps, and rookie Matt Barkley has already leapfrogged Dixon. The Eagles will likely bring four QBs to camp, but won't keep that many on their 53. Dixon is facing an uphill battle.
Fri, May 24, 2013 02:13:00 PM

Eagles QB Dennis Dixon's contract is worth a maximum of $815,000 in 2013.

Dixon's base salary is $715,000, while he could earn a $50,000 roster bonus on top of his $25,000 signing bonus and $25,000 workout bonus if he makes the team. The low-ball numbers are confirmation Dixon isn't a serious candidate for the Eagles' starting job, despite his belief that he's entering an open competition.
Wed, Feb 20, 2013 03:56:00 PM

Eagles QB Dennis Dixon told the Philly Inquirer that it is "his understanding" the team will hold an open quarterback competition in camp.

Dixon says his college ACL tear "stunted" his development, and this is the opportunity he's been "waiting for." The Eagles have been tight lipped about their 2013 quarterback plans, saying only that competition will determine who plays and who doesn't play. We don't think Dixon will beat out Michael Vick, but it's not out of the realm of possibility if he stars in camp.
Mon, Feb 18, 2013 03:30:00 PM

Eagles signed QB Dennis Dixon to a two-year contract.

Dixon to the Eagles has been in the works since the Super Bowl ended. He spent the season on the Ravens practice squad, and that contract ended on Monday. Philadelphia had already reached out to Dixon, and he'll be reuniting with his college coach Chip Kelly. He's likely not a candidate to start, but the Eagles are Dixon's best chance at a 53-man roster spot while he helps the other quarterbacks learn the offense.
Thu, Feb 14, 2013 03:07:00 PM

The Eagles will be eligible to sign Ravens practice squad QB Dennis Dixon on Monday.

The Eagles are allowed to talk to Dixon — which they have done — but teams have exclusive rights to their practice squad players for one week following the conclusion of their season. However, Dixon will be free to sign with whomever he wants beginning Monday, regardless of whether the Ravens offer him a contract. He's widely expected to end up in Philadelphia.

CSN Philly's Geoff Mosher reports the Eagles have "reached out" to Ravens practice squad QB Dennis Dixon, and they are in the "talking stage."

ProFootballTalk.com first brought up the possibility of Dixon rendezvousing with Chip Kelly, and Mosher recently said there were "strong indications" the Eagles would pursue the ex-Oregon star. It's unlikely Dixon would be an option as the team's starter, but it would certainly be his best chance at a 53-man roster spot.
Tue, Feb 5, 2013 03:53:00 PM

CSN Philly reports there are "strong indications" the Eagles will pursue Ravens practice squad QB Dennis Dixon after the Super Bowl.

According to beat writer Geoff Mosher, "all signs point to" Chip Kelly pushing hard for one of his college quarterbacks. Mosher believes Dixon could be an Eagle "by next week." A Heisman trophy candidate before tearing his ACL his senior year at Oregon, Dixon has made just four career appearances in five NFL seasons, but knows Kelly's offense as well as anyone. It's extremely doubtful Dixon would be in play for the Eagles' starting job, but he'd have a good shot at a roster spot after spending 2012 on the practice squad.

Profootballtalk suggests Ravens practice squad QB Dennis Dixon could end up in Philadelphia next season with his college head coach Chip Kelly.

PFT is simply connecting the dots here, but it's a logical and intriguing option. Dixon has been running the scout team in Ravens practice as the team prepares for Colin Kaepernick in the Super Bowl. Dixon played for Kelly at Oregon and was a Heisman candidate in his 2007 senior season before a torn ACL ended that run. Dixon passed for 2,136 yards and 20 touchdowns while adding 583 yards and nine more scores on the ground that year. He hasn't appeared in an NFL game since 2010 with the Steelers.
