The Eagles have agreed to terms on a 2 year deal with free agent QB Dennis Dixon today, according to his agent. It's a move that been rumored since soon after Chip Kelly took over and one that reunites the new coach with one of his most successful QBs at Oregon.
"We are excited to bring in Dennis Dixon to compete at the quarterback position," said Eagles general manager Howie Roseman. "Dennis is a veteran in this league that has been a part of two Super Bowl-winning teams in his career. He's also very familiar with Chip Kelly and how he operates."
Dixon was previously on the Ravens practice squad, but practice squad players automatically become unrestricted free agents a week or so after the Super Bowl.
