    Ravens looking at Dennis Dixon?



    http://blogs.baltimoreravens.com/201...-pursue-dixon/

    Nice to see that they definitely are checking out Jason Brown.

    Dennis Dixon is surprising though.

    I doubt it happens, but I think it's good that they're looking to bring in competition. Makes everyone better.

    Here is the original report ....

    Their entire report of the Ravens having interest in Dixon revolves around one sentence devoid of any source.

    No way it's true and Harbs is on record being happy with Taylor.

    I've no doubt they're extremely happy with Taylor, but I'd be ok with them bringing in another QB for a pre-season QB.

    Competition makes everyone better. I truly believe that.

    I liked what I saw out of Dixon when they played us here.

    I'm not sure why he fell so far out of favor in Pittsburgh, but I wouldn't be opposed to him coming here.

    Taylor's fine, I guess, but he never seemed to be a guy who is so good that we can't find someone better at the same price for the same spot. Regardless of whether Harbaugh is happy with him.

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    They got to see Dixon first hand in a very close game. A lot of teams still do keep 3 QBs on the roster. It's not a bad idea to consider

    I would love to see Jason Brown back in Baltimore, but you gotta think Carolina would be a place that would really appeal as Brown is from NC.

    Dennis Dixon? I'm just curious as to why the Ravens would feel the need to bring in a guy who would likely be the 3rd string QB when last year they were completely fine with having Tyrod Taylor as the backup and no 3rd stringer on the roster. Taylor has one year experience under his belt, you would think if the Ravens were okay with two QBs last year they would certainly be okay with 2 this year.

    I'd be happier yet with bringing in 3rd QB to add to the roster. How much longer can Flacco go without missing games due to injury? Although he would not likely be affordable, I'd rather see a guy with more experience, e.g. Garard.
    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).

    Garrard signed with the Dolphins last month.

    I would love to see JB back in Baltimore, but that's just me. I also think Dixon would easily beat out Taylor for the backup role, and I would love to have him here, but that's just me. I just think he will want more $ than the Ravens can pay a backup QB.

    I agree with both your statements. (1) J. Brown could play LG this year, then slide over to Center in 2013. That could save us a draft pick in 2012 too.
    (2) Last season the Ravens went without a veteran back-up QB, so I think they might go the same route now. Yes, I can see a late round QB being drafted, but not a "high priced" vet with our salary cap situation... Bc
