Report Says 49’ers Could Have Interest in Steelers Free Agent QB Dixon

Pro Football Weekly hears that another potential free-agent quarterback who might appeal to the 49ers is the Steelers’ Dennis Dixon.

If the free agency rules are retained from the last CBA, Dixon would be a restricted free agent, meaning the Steelers get the right of first refusal and in Dixon’s case, a fifth-round choice if he signs with another team.

Dixon, the former Oregon star, is fully recovered from a severe knee injury he incurred in college. However, if Dixon was really impressive, the Steelers would have protected him more.
