In a move that has been talked about for weeks, the Eagles and new coach Chip Kelly have added quarterback Dennis Dixon to the roster.

Dixon comes to the team with a two-year deal.

Kelly was Dixon’s offensive coordinator his senior season at Oregon, when Dixon threw for 20 touchdowns, rushed for nine more and threw four interceptions.

Dixon has attempted just 59 passes in four games over five NFL seasons with the Steelers and Ravens, but he already has two Super Bowl rings — with Pittsburgh in 2008 and Baltimore in 2012.

The Eagles do already have two QB’s on the roster that could make it tough from keeping Dixon doing anything more than holding a clipboard in 2013 – Michael Vick and Nick Foles.
