Quarterback Dennis Dixon, a restricted free agent, did not sign his tender and has yet to report to Pittsburgh Steelers training camp.
Dixon's agent, Jeff Sperbeck, says his client prefers a chance to compete for another team over backing up two-time Super Bowl champion Ben Roethlisberger in Pittsburgh.
Dixon was drafted by the Steelers in 2008 and has been Roethlisberger's backup the past three seasons.
"Dennis would love the opportunity to start," Sperbeck said. "Yes, we would look forward to an opportunity for a trade - it's a starting opportunity we're looking for."
