After the Broncos signed P Marquette King to a three-year contract, reports mentioned that Denver was expected to make Dixon available for trade and the Giants could obviously use some help at the position.
Beyond that, there isn’t much out there in the free agent market outside of Donnie Jones, which is likely why the Giants were willing to trade for him.
Dixon, 24, is a former seventh-round pick of the Broncos back in 2016. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $2.42 million contract and set to make base salaries of $630,000 and $720,000 over the next two years of the agreement.
In 2017, Dixon appeared in all 16 games for the Broncos and totaled 3,073 yards on 73 attempts (42.09 YPA) to go along with three touchbacks.
We’ll have more regarding a trade involving Dixon as the news is available.
