As of right now this just seems to be a rumor. However, would you trade him and for what or whom?

he's ultimately no better than our other 2 backup QBs, given that, and the fact that we got him in the 5th round, we'll be ahead of the curve getting even just a 5th round pick for him.

Not sure why a team would trade for him. He'll be on the street with bags in had in just a few weeks ... just send a car to pick him up!

i doubt anyone would give anything more than a 6th rounder, tops. dixon was a waste of a 5th round pick.

Yea I really don't see someone trading for him. It goes back to when he was holding out and wanting to be traded, the thing is Dixon you haven't done anything to prove any sort of value! haha

Interesting though, someone on another from suggested the 49's for Taylor Mays...

Why would anyone trade for him? Makes no sense.

If someone wanted him they would have signed him before he resigned with the Steelers.

If we can trade him and get something from him, do it or otherwise he's here for another year.

He was a restricted free agent so he couldn't have been signed away because we tendered him. I think some team would take a 4th/5th round flyer on him because he's shown flashes like in that Ravens game 2 years ago when he started or last season against the Falcons and in the preseason in general.

Maybe we could get a water boy to be named later or even a case of land shark? I think that might be fair...:sofunny:
