    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.

    Seriously though, Dixon could be useful QB depth but I assume that the coaches like Tyrod Taylor for that role.

    Are we still complaining about special teams signings and roster decisions after watching how well they are performing this year? I think Considine is earning every penny of his contract and has earned his spot on the team.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    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.

    Let's face it. As far as the QB depth chart is concerned Dennis Dixon was always going to be a distant #3 on both depth charts. I think he just likes his situation in Baltimore better given we are legitimate superbowl contenders while the Steelers may very well limp in or out of the playoff picture.

    Personally, I think Dixon is better than Taylor. I have never been a Tyrod Taylor fan..I just don't think he's that good.

    I think he's afraid they're gong to wear those throwback uni's again.
