Anthony Dixon RB BUF 1 Month

Bills agreed to terms with RB Anthony Dixon, formerly of the 49ers.

It's not an ideal landing spot. He's not going to play much on offense but will be a valuable contributor chasing down kickoffs and punts. Dixon, 26, is a battering ram at 6-foot-1 and 233 pounds. He'll operate as the No. 3 back behind C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, who have combined to miss 13 games the past three years.

Free agent Anthony Dixon tweets he will officially join the Buffalo Bills on Saturday.

If true, Dixon would slot in as the No. 3 tailback in Buffalo behind C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson. It is a good signing for the Bills, but seriously damages Dixon's fantasy value. We've always been interested to see what Dixon would do with more playing time, but, barring injury or Jackson's release, Dixon will once again be relegated to a backup role.

Free agent Anthony Dixon has left his Titans visit without a contract, and will visit the Bills next.

Dixon would be an intriguing addition in run-heavy Buffalo, but the Bills appear unlikely to release Fred Jackson heading into the final year of his contract. That means that, as he was in San Francisco, Dixon would be no higher than third on the depth chart. He'd be an upgrade on Tashard Choice.

CSN Bay Area considers 49ers RB Anthony Dixon "50-50" to make the 53-man roster.

Dixon earned his way onto the team last summer, but ended up playing just 32 offensive snaps. Dixon could be out of luck if fourth-round pick Marcus Lattimore (knee) manages to avoid the reserve/NFI list or injured reserve to begin the season.

Contrary to previous speculation, 49ers GM Trent Baalke and OC Greg Roman suggest RB Anthony Dixon has played his way onto the final roster.

"I think we can look to 'Dix' to have his most productive season as a Niner," Roman said Tuesday morning. Baalke praised Dixon for a "tremendous offseason," valuable special teams play and a newfound versatility as a halfback/fullback hybrid on offense. Dixon's rise is bad news for Rock Cartwright, who may be the odd man out.

49ers RB Anthony Dixon is unlikely make the 53-man roster.

Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter, and LaMichael James are obvious locks to stick. Coach Jim Harbaugh already said Brandon Jacobs' spot is safe and Rock Cartwright is expected to stay on as a special team contributor. That leaves Dixon on the outside look in. Reportedly in great shape, the 6'1/233 Dixon figures to get snatched up quickly on waivers.

49ers RB Anthony Dixon is reportedly in "the best shape of his life" entering his third NFL training camp.

Per Pro Football Weekly, Dixon is "determined" to make himself difficult for the 49ers to cut. Dixon probably won't make the roster barring injury to Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter, LaMichael James, or Brandon Jacobs, but he could help himself with some good preseason tape and get claimed off waivers at final cuts.
