Isn't he more Tebowish than Manningish?

Maybe we won't be drafting a QB after all.

I thought he was a "Tebow" backup. Well, if they do sign him, I would think that negates drafting a QB before the 5th round, if at all, this year. I think our QBOTF is going to be next year at the earliest.

Seems like a PR move to say they just weren't interested in the circus that follows Tebow.

"Hey we loved Tebow so much, just couldn't stand the circus. Look, we even brought in Dennis Dixson...see Bronco fans"

No chance he signs

I actually like this move. I like it more than Hanie.....when I have seen Dixon play he has been pretty solid....good arm....mobility etc. I hope he signs here!

I thought Dixon had re-signed with the Steelers? He is a much better option than Hanie that is for sure.

I'd take Weber over Hanie and Dixon.

These are two QBs that have proven that they are mediocre.

When I saw we signed Haine, I thought "Henne" and That would have been a good idea.

Peyton needs to stay healthy next year.
