Bills Give Former Steelers QB Dennis Dixon The Early Ax

It might finally be the end of the line for former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Dennis Dixon as the Oregon product was included in the first round of cuts made Monday morning by the Buffalo Bills.

Dixon, who was selected by the Steelers in the fifth-round (156th overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft, wasn’t given much of a shot by the Bills to beat out backups Thad Lewis and Jeff Tuel during the preseason as he threw just one pass and rushed six times for 10 yards in the eight snaps that he was on the field for.

Nearly a year ago, Dixon was released by the Philadelphia Eagles after failing to earn a roster spot as a backup with them. He was signed by the Bills to their practice squad last October and remained there the rest of the season.

During his time with the Steelers, Dixon was 35-of-59 passing for 402 with one touchdown and two interceptions.
