    Steelers Sign Fifth Round Pick - Dennis Dixon

    STEELERS SIGN DIXON


    The Steelers have signed another pick from the 2008 NFL Draft. The team has locked up quarterback Dennis Dixon. The fifth-round pick is expected to be the teams third quarterback this season. Dixon reportedly received a $130,000 signing bonus. Despite injuring his knee at the end of last season, Dixon is expected be ready for the start of camp at the end of the month. Earlier in the day, the Steelers signed fourth-round pick offensive tackle Tony Hill.

    yep, good to see him signed; he's all but got his spot on this team nailed down since Jabransky was cut. Had he not gotten injured he could have been atleast a 2nd round pick in the draft.

    Im really happy to see him locked up! He is going to be a killer back-up QB for Ben, especially since batch isnt getting any younger
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    I guess we'll never know now will we?

    At this point they must feel Dixon is going to be healthy enough and has the talent to stick around for a long time and be a quality player for this team behind Ben. He's got a great teacher in Batch to learn from and of course the man himself, Ben.

    we do know, dixion has it on lock just like i said, and if zabransky had shown anything in the ota's and **** he'd still be on the team, but since he wasn't good enough to compete with a cripple they cut him

    I don't think Dixon had it on lock the whole time but he did indeed show something in this offseason to make the team a believer in him enough to cut ties with Zabransky. It could have been a fun battle to watch in camp but we're better getting him more time in the preseason doing what he can without splitting time with a counterpart fighting for his job too.

    Dixon is on

    Dixon is on the club. Now he can settle down and learn the offense. I would also like to see him in the slot a few times this year. Imagine a 6-7 TE(Spaeth), 6-5 WR(Sweed), 6-5 Slot(Dixon) and then our beloved Hines Ward!!! And of course fast Willie in the back field. You cant stop that!!

    I am 90% sure Dixon is not 6-5. I thought he was like 6-2?

    And you forgot Santonio. What the f uck?



    Anyway, I like Batch, but he no longer has an arm. If Ben is out for an extended period of time, I could see Dixon getting the starts over Batch.

    because height is all that matters...thats why we need matt muthafukin jones.

    dixon will play primarily backup QB but he said he will do whatever it takes to stay on the team whether that be moving to WR or returning a few kicks
