    Re: Ravens sign QB Dennis Dixon to PS



    PFT explains...

    It seems odd that Dixon, who played in four games over four seasons with the Steelers, would have practice squad eligibility remaining, but his time as the Steelers’ third quarterback helps him in that regard. According to the CBA, “free agent players who were on the Active List for fewer than nine regular season games during their only Accrued Season(s)” are eligble for the practice squad and Dixon’s pre-2011 work was mostly as a third quarterback which, at the time, didn’t count as being part of the Active List and he spent most of last year on the inactive list as well. If it still doesn’t quite fit that Dixon’s eligible for the practice squad, just remember that his presence on the Ravens practice squad means that he’s eligible in the eyes of the league.
    So basically, by being inactive all those times, he ended up getting through a loophole.

    Put Tyrod Taylor on the Practice squad and put Dennis Dixon on the 53 man roster. That makes a lot more sense than keeping Taylor as the #2
    Yes!!!!

    once he has integrated himself into the offense, I certainly agree.

    I really thoguth Dixon was going to be a star when he was in college... then he tore up his knee, and hasn't shown that at all. But, he hasn't been all that terrible either.

    Yeah, on Madden you could totally make Dixon the #2, today and win the Super Bowl if Flacco gets hurt!! So... the Ravens should do it too, yeah!!!

    But............................ back over here in real life, guys need time to learn the offense, the terminology, develop chemistry with the receivers... you know, little things like that, which separate fantasy worlds from reality.

    That said I've always liked Dixon. I think he has the ability to actually be a starter-quality NFL QB, though with a few years of not playing in real games behind him, the inevitable rust has probably begun to set in. If you're not getting games, you lose the feel of the game, and it gets harder and harder to break through.

    Just because a guy is on the PS doesn't automatically mean the team would consider him for the 53.

    Maybe he's just there to prep the team to play Vick in Week #2.

    Yes!!!! Dixon has shown more passing skills than Tyrod, and has some meaningful NFL experience.

    Re: Ravens sign QB Dennis Dixon to PS

    We were always going to put a young QB on the PS

    Brantley and Stewart didn't make it, Dixon is a good pickup

    Very interesting that Ravens would add a former Squeeler to the PS and a former Patsie, Ihedigbo, to the 53 man roster. Coaching staff will certainly get a debrief on terminology and how each team likes to attack the Ravens. Nice strategic pickups.

    I would think that Dean Pees would fill that role better, when it comes to the Pats.

    Is former Hall of Famer Derek Anderson available?

    Re: Ravens sign QB Dennis Dixon to PS

    I'm telling you - someone in the Ravens hierarchy has this masochistic fetish for "Michael Vick" type quarterbacks. Troy Smith, Tyrod Taylor, Dennis Dixon, et al. Evidently there is no end in sight. Thank God Joe is nearly indestructible. If we have to rely on either Taylor or Dixon to win a game for us this year our goose is cooked.

    Lets just hope that in the next draft they go out an pick themselves a developmental QB to back up Joe.
