Hoke and Moore Inked; Dixon’s Signature Coming Soon?

A couple more Steelers have agreed to terms with the franchise today, including nose tackle Chris Hoke and third-down back Mewelde Moore. Hoke agreed to a one-year deal. Last season Moore only rushed for 99 yards and didn’t score a touchdown, losing most of his carries to Issac Redman, who was used more as a power back to get the tough 1-2 yards in the clutch.

The Post-Gazette reports that the Steelers will try to sign backup quarterback Dennis Dixon today as well. Dixon isn’t happy about coming back to the team to be a third-string QB in 2011, and as we talked about yesterday, the agent for Dixon wants a trade to try to get him on a team where he can either be a true #2 or even a starter.

  1. Nobody wanted Dixon after getting injured at Oregon. Dixon has been outstanding at getting himself injured for the Steelers, which was of no value to anyone. Otherwise what has he done? Only in the Arena League would Dixon be considered a starter. Get real Dennis & stop complaining.
