NFC East Watch: Dennis Dixon May Reunite with Chip Kelly in Philly

Dixon played quarterback for Kelly at the University of Oregon



    A University of Oregon reunion of sorts could soon unfold on the East Coast--Philadelphia to be exact.

    Geoff Mosher of is reporting that new Eagles head coach Chip Kelly may be looking to bring in former Oregon quarterback Dennis Dixon to run--or at least audition for the chance to run--his frenetically paced offense. Obviously Dixon, a Heisman trophy front-runner in 2007 before he suffered a season-ending knee injury, knows the offense quite well.

    Kelly and the Eagles will have to wait until after this Sunday’s Super Bowl to make a move, as Dixon is currently a member of the Baltimore Ravens practice squad. But, Mosher writes, “there are strong indications” that a deal could be done shortly thereafter, perhaps in the week following the big game.
