Boobie Dixon says his “time is up” in Buffalo

The Bills cleared nearly $13 million under the salary cap by releasing defensive end Mario Williams on Tuesday, although they also committed more than $13 million to left tackle Cordy Glenn by using the non-exclusive franchise tag.

That left the team with more work to do to if they want to have money to spend on left guard Richie Incognito and other players. They’ll get some from releasing offensive lineman Kraig Urbik and running back Boobie Dixon, who joined Urbik in saying farewell to the team on Twitter.

“Thank you to the Buffalo Bills organization and to the fans, my time is up, but you will always have a special place in my heart,” Dixon wrote.

Dixon’s departure will save the team $1.15 million under the cap. He ran 21 times for 44 yards and a touchdown in 2015. The Bills have LeSean McCoy, Karlos Williams and Mike Gillislee coming back at running back.

Tight end MarQueis Gray also said goodbye on Twitter, calling it “a pleasure” to have spent parts of the last two seasons with the team. There are no savings involved as Gray was set to be a restricted free agent, so not tendering him will just make him an unrestricted one instead.

    You folks over at PFT must’ve been fighting each other for the privilege of writing a story about a guy named “Boobie”.

    This guy was a great teammate as a 49er and I’m sure he was the same in Buffalo. Best of luck Boobie!

    Really, What kind of parents name their kid Boobie?

  7. reapshavoc says: Mar 1, 2016 2:31 PM

    Boobie isn’t his real name

  8. braceyourselffor12 says: Mar 1, 2016 2:33 PM

    He’s real name is Anthony, Boobie is his nickname.

    While he was a fan favorite, this move was LONG over due. Just remember, we kept him in favor of Fred Jackson. While that allowed us to scoop up Gillislee, I would rather of had Fred with all of the injuries the backfield saw this season.

    Hell I’d be thanking Buffalo too if I made $54,700 per run, not a big lose for Bills even though a nice guy

    1.15 mil? That’s the most expensive Boobie I’ve ever heard of.

    I remember when he had like 2 good games a couple years ago.

    Hilarious name. Just imagine it shouted over a football field. “Hey Dixon!” Ha ha ha!

    Commenter above nailed it. Good guy, amusing fan favorite, but this one had a long time coming. Best of luck to him though.

    Buffalo is full of BOOBS …. So what’s one more

    Had his nickname been “Footie” Rex would have kept him around. Cuz Rex isn’t much of a boob man, but he is a foot man
