    Maybe he thought that he'd get cut again from the Steelers once people got healthy.

    No idea at all, unless Dixon was really unhappy with how they treated him in Pitt before. Certainly if he had gone back to the Steelers it would've been short-term, possibly as little as three weeks. Still, that's considerably more $$ than he's going to get on the Ravens' practice squad. Perhaps more here than meets the eye ...assuming, of course, that LaCanfora's story is accurate.

    Isn't the vet minimum salary about $600K - so 1/16th of that (for each game is) about $40,000. Surely the Ravens can;t be paying him that kind of money to stay on the practice squad.

    Dixon would be making a little over $28K on an active roster (based on a yearly salary of $480K).

    The Ravens are paying him $5700/week.

    Maybe he has seen what playing behind the Steelers O-line is doing to QB's this year and decided that the bump in salary is not enough hazard pay.

    Maybe he's just pissed at them for releasing him.

    I wouldn't for that amount of money.

    Dixon has previously stated he likes the Ravens/the entire organization. Maybe just a personal preference and he might think the Ravens could make it to the SB this year. And Shittsburgh, not so much.

    At the end of last season, MN wanted a player from GB's PS and he refused. When asked about it, he, in not so many words, implied he wanted to be on a SB team. For which, they had a great shot. Sorry, I don't have a link.

    Things did not end well in Pittsburgh with Dennis Dixon. There was word that Dixon was not a very receptive player to coaching. There was word that Dixon felt he should have received more of a fair chance to be the back up to Roethlisberger than what was given.

    Maybe he's stuck in a lease.
