Bills rumors: Dennis Dixon has workout scheduled on Sunday

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Bills are looking for a mobile quarterback to replace E.J. Manuel.

With rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel out for a few weeks, the Bills are on the lookout for similar mobile passer. Buffalo is set to workout former Steelers and Eagles quarterback Dennis Dixon on Sunday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The Bills have already worked out former Redskins passer Pat White but are now setting their sights on Dixon, who was released by the Eagles during final cuts in August. Dixon, who was a Heisman candidate at Oregon in 2007, has had an up-and-down career in the NFL. The former fifth-round pick of the Steelers spent four years in Pittsburgh and won a Super Bowl but only appeared in four games (two starts) during his tenure. Due to his lack of game experience, Dixon was eligible for the Ravens' practice squad in 2012, where he spent the entire season and earned another Super Bowl ring. He has not played in a regular season game since 2010.

The Bills only have rookie quarterback Jeff Tuel on the roster with Manuel out, and Tuel had a pretty pitiful performance against the Browns on Thursday. If the Bills are to add a veteran to start in Manuel's place, they will have to move quickly. The Bills will host the Bengals in Week 6.
