Dennis Dixon reportedly says no to Steelers, who continue hunting for quarterbacks

Dennis Dixon will stay on the Ravens' practice squad.

Jason La Canfora notes that the Steelers have spoken with former quarterback Dennis Dixon about rejoining the team, but he would rather stay on the Ravens' practice squad.

That's odd, of course, since practice squad players don't make much, and the Steelers' quarterback situation could well create an opportunity. Both Ben Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich are hurt, leaving the Steelers with only Charlie Batch.

The Steelers are hunting for a new quarterback this week. Former Patriots signal-caller Brian Hoyer appears to be a possibility, along with former Eagle Mike Kafka. (The Steelers are still probably about one injury short of being able to call their current quarterback situation "Kafkaesque," but if they sign Mike, they can presumably skip straight there.) Both Kafka and Hoyer will work out with the Steelers Tuesday. In any case, look for the Steelers to sign someone in the coming days. They play the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
