Former Steelers QB Dennis Dixon signed a deal to join the Baltimore Ravens' practice squad, as reported by NFL Network reporter Jason LaCanfora.
Dixon was not resigned by Pittsburgh this offseason, and was said to be searching for an opportunity to sign somewhere he could compete for a starting job.
Turns out, the best he got was a chance to continue getting paid to play football.
LaCanfora speculates part of the reason Dixon was brought in was because of a shaky preseason by back-up Tyrod Taylor.
The Colts, and former Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, kicked Dixon's tires this offseason, but nothing came of it. Baltimore gave him a look, but instead, decided to go with former Colts QB Curtis Painter, who was cut Friday.
Dixon was 35-for-59 (59.3 percent) for 402 yards passing, with one touchdown and two interceptions spread over four appearances in three seasons in Pittsburgh. He was on the Steelers' roster from 2008-2011.
