Dixon has been hoping that he could play for Kelly, who was his offensive coordinator at Oregon when he was a Heisman Trophy candidate.

Agent Jeff Sperbeck told The Baltimore Sun that he's in talks with the Eagles about potentially working out a deal for Dixon.
Dixon's father reiterated to The Sun while attending the Super Bowl that his son was hoping to reunite with Kelly in Philadelphia, praising Kelly's innovative, fast-break offensive schemes.
Under the NFL collective bargaining agreement, Dixon is free to sign with the Eagles or any other NFL team at any time and doesn't have to wait until the start of free agency March 12.
Dixon is an athletic former Pittsburgh Steelers fifth-round draft pick who signed with the Ravens this season.
"I'm in awe right now," Dixon told The Sun when Kelly was hired. "I'm at a loss for words. I'm sure it was a business decision, a family decision, but it's really hard to leave the Ducks. I think he is ready for that next step.”
