Bills add Anthony Dixon

The Bills not only have a new linebacker.  They also have a new running back and special-teams contributor.

Anthony Dixon, formerly of the 49ers, has signed with Buffalo.  The team announced the deal on Saturday.

A sixth-round pick in 2010, Dixon has appeared in all 72 games of his regular-season and postseason career in San Francisco.  His first — and only — start came in the 2013 NFC title game.  Filling in for Will Tukuafu at fullback, Dixon’s one-yard touchdown dive helped push the 49ers to a 10-0 lead in the game.

Dixon has gained 458 rushing yards for his career in the regular-season, with eight regular-season touchdowns.  He becomes the fifth running back on the roster for now, joining C.J. Spiller, Fred Jackson, Anthony Allen, and Ronnie Wingo.

    Another piece of the puzzle that the Bills found and fixed. Dixon will take over short yardage and goaline situations with Spiller and Jackson splitting downs. Dixon will also play special teams.

    Wingo or Allen won’t make the 53 man roster. Another solid pick up for the bills here.

    Man this should really put Buffalo over the top! ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. When bird flew the coop so did Buffalo’s chance of improving. The Bills, Americas feel bad team. Old joke, what is the difference between the bills and cereal? Cereal belongs in a bowl. New joke what is the difference between the bills and cereal? Cereal can get into a bowl.

    Nooooooo!

    I hate to see Dixon leave. Bills fans you got one hell of a competitor and total team guy. He will do whatever is asked of him and do it 100%. Best of luck Bubbie.

    He juked when he should have ran straight against NY in the 2011 NFC championship game on a huge third down play. Niners would have held on to the drive and gone on to the Super Bowl. Oh, well.

    Sounds like a great guy to have on your team. Hope they don’t get predictable with personnel groupings, as in the Jauron years.

    As a 9er fan I hate to see this guy go. He is a great teammate and it’s true, he will do anything that’s asked of him. Kinda saw this coming though as we have a really crowded and talented backfield, and I thought he might’ve left last year. That being said, Buffalo’s backfield is a little crowded too at the moment, but 3rd downs and misdirection plays? This guy is money. Good luck to you AD!

    Uhhh, does this possibly mean that Marrone, intends on running the ball a lot? In the AFC? The pass happy AFC?

    Who’s he think he is? Pete Carroll?
