Eagles GM Howie Roseman is confident Antonio Dixon can be a 3-4 nose tackle.
"I don’t think any question about it," Roseman said. "That’s his skill set. He has good use of his hands. He’s a run stopper." Dixon was among the Eagles' final cuts last summer because he didn't fit the Wide-9 scheme, but he was later re-signed in late December. He tips the scales at 322 pounds.

Eagles re-signed DT Antonio Dixon.

Dixon spent his first three seasons in Philadelphia, but was released at final cuts this year because he didn't fit Jim Washburn's Wide-9 scheme. Now that Washburn is gone, the Eagles are bringing Dixon back into their organization for the offseason program.

Colts signed DT Antonio Dixon.

Dixon was waived at final cuts by the Eagles. Dixon had success as a run-stuffer in 2010, but proved to be a poor fit for Jim Washburn's "wide-nine" scheme in 2011. Dixon could become a part of the defensive-line rotation for a Colts team that's struggled against the run this season, and provides insurance for NT Martin Tevaseu (ankle).

Eagles waived or released DT Antonio Dixon, TE Brett Brackett, DL Landon Cohen, WR Chad Hall, OT D.J. Jones, P Mat McBriar, LB Adrian Moten, DT Ollie Ogbu, LB Ryan Rau, DE Monte Taylor, and DT Frank Trotter.

Dixon was a strong run-stuffer two years ago under Sean McDermott, but has been a poor fit in Jim Washburn's wide-nine scheme. McDermott is now running the Panthers defense.

Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News is concerned that DT Antonio Dixon is a poor fit for DL coach Jim Washburn's style.

The 6'3/322 Dixon is a strong run-stuffer, but Washburn's primary objective is getting to the passer. Despite Bowen's concerns, Dixon figures to make the team and play regular snaps, especially with Mike Patterson (brain surgery) out of action. Dixon will rotate with Cullen Jenkins, Derek Landri and rookie Fletcher Cox.

The Philadelphia Inquirer expects Antonio Dixon to get the first crack at Mike Patterson's (brain surgery) starting defensive tackle job.

Patterson has been ruled out for training camp and it would not be a surprise if he misses more time than that. But even if Dixon wins the starting job, it will only be a nominal designation. First-round pick Fletcher Cox, versatile Cullen Jenkins and run-stuffer Derek Landri will all rotate heavily. The Eagles' defense won't miss Patterson too sorely.

Eagles DT Antonio Dixon (torn triceps) underwent January surgery to remove a herniated disk from his back.

Dixon has been back on the field for OTAs and insists both his back and his triceps are 100 percent healed. Although he was limited to just four games last season, Dixon had emerged as a strong run-stuffer down the stretch in 2010.

Eagles signed restricted free agent DT Antonio Dixon to a one-year contract.

Dixon had recently been tendered at the second-round level. Limited to four games by a torn triceps last season, Dixon made just four tackles before being sent to injured reserve. He started 10 games in 2010, making 30 tackles and two sacks. He'll provide depth as a run stuffer.

Eagles tendered restricted free agent DT Antonio Dixon at the second-round level.

Dixon is more run stuffer than pass rusher and doesn't quite fit DL coach Jim Washburn's Wide-9 system as well as he did Sean McDermott's old defense. The Eagles still value the 6-foot-3, 322-pound road grater, however, and Dixon should have no trouble avoiding offer sheets on his $1.927M tender.
Mon, Mar 12, 2012 07:43:00 PM

The Eagles will "almost certainly" re-sign restricted free agent DT Antonio Dixon.

Dixon was limited to just four games last season by a torn triceps, but has proven to be a solid run-stuffer since signing as an undrafted free agent in 2009. He is the Eagles' lone restricted free agent.
Mon, Mar 12, 2012 11:47:00 AM

Eagles placed DT Antonio Dixon (triceps) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Dixon tore his triceps during the second half of Sunday's loss to the Niners. The underrated run-stuffer will be a restricted free agent after this season. Dixon has been replaced on the roster by DT Derek Landri.
Tue, Oct 4, 2011 12:05:00 PM

Eagles DT Antonio Dixon tore his left triceps in Sunday's loss to the 49ers and is almost certainly done for the season.

He'll have surgery shortly. The third-year undrafted free agent out of Miami had four tackles in four games this season, but is an underrated run stuffer. The Eagles, who currently rank 30th against the run, will certainly miss Dixon.
Mon, Oct 3, 2011 12:08:00 PM

Eagles DT Antonio Dixon suffered a torn left triceps in the second half on Sunday and will not return.

Philly struggles against the run so any loss up front is going to hurt, but they have decent depth at DT and their problems are at LB, anyway. Look for Mike Patterson and Trevor Laws to pick up snaps if Dixon misses any time.
Sun, Oct 2, 2011 03:47:00 PM

Eagles DT Anthony Dixon graded out eighth overall among interior defensive linemen in 2010 run defense, according to Pro Football Focus.

The agile 330-pounder dominated against weaker centers and guards after taking Brodrick Bunkley's starting job. In new defensive line guru Jim Washburn's scheme, Dixon will also get a chance to pressure passers. If he picks up his play against premier blockers, he could reach Pro Bowl status. Not bad for a player plucked off waivers in 2009.
Sun, Apr 10, 2011 01:53:00 PM

Eagles named Jim Washburn as their new defensive line coach and signed him to a three-year contract.

It's an instant impact hire for Philly. Known for getting the absolute most out of linemen such as Tony Brown, Albert Haynesworth, Jason Jones, Dave Ball, and Jason Babin in Tennessee, Washburn is an ideal fit for the Eagles. His history is with a 4-3 scheme similar to Philadelphia's, and Washburn is exceptional at using rotations to maximize strengths. The Birds have plenty of talent in place to field a dominant defensive line.
