Dixon, 24, is a former seventh-round pick of the Cowboys back in May of last year. He lasted just a few months in Dallas before he was waived at the start of the 2014 regular season.
Since then, Dixon has had brief stints with the Vikings, Bears and Dolphins before returning to Minnesota towards the end of last season. However, he was cut loose just a few days after this year’s NFL Draft.
During his rookie season, Dixon appeared in five games and recorded three tackles and a fumble recovery.
