The Philadelphia Eagles have been in contact with free agent Dennis Dixon, according to the players agent.
Dixon, who played under new Flyers coach Chip Kelly at Oregon, spent the last season working on the scout team for the Baltimore Ravens.
His agent, Jeff Sperbeck, told the Baltimore Sun that he was in talks with the Eagles "about potentially working out a deal for Dixon."
Dixon, 28, was drafted in the fifth round by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2008. He has played in only four NFL games and has not suited up for one since 2010.
