While many fans and more than a few San Francisco 49ers players may actually be celebrating the reported departure of offensive coordinator Greg Roman to the Buffalo Bills, one former Niner and current Bill is just as thrilled.
Running back Anthony Dixon, who spent the first four years of his NFL career with the 49ers before departing for Buffalo, took to Twitter to show his enthusiasm for the hiring of Roman under new Bills coach Rex Ryan.

Dixon was a sixth-round pick of the Niners in 2010 out of Mississippi State. Used more as a blocking back, he rushed for 221 yards and six touchdowns on 78 carries, averaging 2.8 yards per attempt in 48 regular-season games, one start, through three years with Roman as his offensive coordinator.
