It must be more because the Ravens feel Dixon is better than Leftwich, and didn't want to play against him. Dixon didn't spend time in Pitt. under the new OC, so he doesn't have insight on the new system, right?

Very smart move on the Ravens' part because of the amount of time Dixon spent here...too much intell to let him get away. But, the Steelers can still poach him, but they will have to drop a player.

Dang Omar, he flashed potential in pre-season. What a shame.

Why should we get Dixon when we already have Taylor as our backup QB

Wish they had not released Omar Brown; perhaps they intend to add him to the practice squad somehow. Lots of musical chairs at the bottom of the roster. Who's that TE they signed? :(

I would rather have Omar Brown the the TE they grabbed!!Also we sign a 33 year old corner? Why not Resign Danny Gorrer? He was released from Seattle last week!!CB Chris Johnson won't even contribute on special teams!!

Great chess move!
It sucks to lose Omar but this puts the Squeelers in a harder spot.
Dixon would have been an obvious choice for them. We'll let him go in about 4 weeks :-)

The timing of the move is of note, considering the rivals are set to clash Sunday and Pittsburgh may be in need of a quarterback with Roethlisberger ailing.

^ resigning Dixon to keep him from going back to pittsburgh was a very shrewd business move. i like it! lol!

Gorrer didn't clear waivers, the Bucs picked him up before we had the opportunity to try and resign him.

Of all the people you could cut, you chose Omar Brown? Hopefully we resign him after the Pittsburgh game in M&T... cannot afford to lose Omar who had an uncanny knack for the ball!
