    Dennis Dixon a "no show" at Steelers camp, wants to play elsewhere

    The training camp of the Pittsburgh Steelers is filled with early storylines. But one story that hasn't received much attention is the status of quarterback Dennis Dixon, who has been a no-show in camp.

    A restricted free agent, Dixon has yet to sign his tender and hasn't reported to the Steelers. On Sunday, the AFC North blog caught up with Dixon's agent, Jeff Sperbeck, who said his client would prefer a chance to compete elsewhere rather than be a backup to two-time Super Bowl champion Ben Roethlisberger this season.

    "Dennis would love the opportunity to start," Sperbeck said. "Yes, we would look forward to an opportunity for a trade -- it's a starting opportunity we're looking for."

    Dixon has been a backup to Roethlisberger since 2008.

    The Steelers put a fifth-round tender on Dixon this offseason, so there is a chance other teams could eventually show interest once the dust settles on unrestricted quarterbacks.

    Dixon is not going to go anywhere and start. If that's what he's holding out for he might as well not even bother. There's nobody in the league that will offer him anything other than a backup job. With Leftwich and Batch still on the roster, he knows he wouldn't even be guaranteed a chance to be the main backup.

    I can't blame him for wanting to get more playing time, any player in the NFL wants that. As far as getting a starting gig now, that's just not in the cards. He has very limited experience and spent most of last season injured as it is.

    I heard that the Panthers are supposedly willing to trade their towel manager for him, plus a conditional container of Gatorade. I say the Steelers do it.

    If the man is unhappy, give him what he wants,but make sure we get something in return.
