Chip Kelly continues to fill out his coaching staff, but there's still a big decision to be made in regard to which quarterbacks will have a chance to start for his Philadelphia Eagles come September. Two names already on the list are Michael Vick and Nick Foles, but it looks like a third could be added in the coming weeks.
The obvious connection is that Kelly coached Dixon at Oregon, so he'd have a natural advantage over Vick, Foles or almost anyone else who is brought in to compete for the open job.
It's very unlikely Dixon lands a starting job here, but crazier things have happened, and Kelly has a long history with the guy. At the very least, I'd expect him to have a strong chance to make the 53-man roster for 2013.
