    Maybe he thought that he'd get cut again from the Steelers once people got healthy.

    No idea at all, unless Dixon was really unhappy with how they treated him in Pitt before. Certainly if he had gone back to the Steelers it would've been short-term, possibly as little as three weeks. Still, that's considerably more $$ than he's going to get on the Ravens' practice squad. Perhaps more here than meets the eye ...assuming, of course, that LaCanfora's story is accurate.

    Isn't the vet minimum salary about $600K - so 1/16th of that (for each game is) about $40,000. Surely the Ravens can;t be paying him that kind of money to stay on the practice squad.

    Maybe he's stuck in a lease.

    They should cut someone useless and promote Dixon anyway, we need more QB depth than just Tyrod Taylor IMO.

    Its a little bit different story - but granted - not that much to make a significant difference. Its still puzzling. Prehaps the Ravens have promised him a full shot at competing for the #2 backup next year - although its difficult to see him beating out Taylor. What the Ravens really need is a good young stand up pocket passer as a back up - maybe that's in the 2013 draft plans.

    Dixon, in addition to being a backup QB, could probably play safety better than Sean "Traffic Cone" Considine.

    Seriously though, Dixon could be useful QB depth but I assume that the coaches like Tyrod Taylor for that role.

    haha, totally agreed, I still don't get the Considine signing, he's terrible.

    What's really strange is that the Ravens already dumped him from their practice squad once. No guarantees he'll stay on it the rest of the season. Dixon doesn't have any security from either team.
