Former San Francisco 49ers running back Anthony Dixon has agreed to terms with the Buffalo Bills.

Dixon announced the news on Twitter:



Dixon, 26, adds depth to the Bills' backfield. At the moment, he figures to compete for a role behind lead backs Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller.

Dixon sat third on the 49ers’ depth chart last season behind Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter. In 16 games played, he gained 56 yards on 28 carries but added two touchdowns.

At 6-foot-1, 233 pounds, Dixon is a bigger running back who isn’t a threat as a receiver. He was a sixth-round pick by the 49ers in 2010.
