Eagles release Adrian Robinson and Dennis Dixon

New, comments

Two weeks after being traded from the Steelers for Felix Jones, the Eagles released linebacker Dennis Dixon.

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports
So much for the Change of Venue theory.

The Steelers traded linebacker Adrian Robinson to the Eagles for running back Felix Jones before their Preseason Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Friday, they released Robinson, just two weeks into his tenure with the team.

The Eagles also cut former Steelers back-up quarterback Dennis Dixon.

Dixon, odd as it seems, is one of the very few quarterbacks in the NFL with two Super Bowl rings. He was on the Steelers' Super Bowl XLIII championship team, as well as a member of the Baltimore Ravens' Super Bowl-winning team last season.

The Steelers are expected to make their early cuts Friday as well, as they prepare to meet the league's 6 p.m. ET Saturday deadline to have their rosters down to 53 players.

The Steelers open the regular season Sept. 8 with a home game against the Tennessee Titans.
