Anthony Dixon set to visit Bills

Former San Francisco 49ers running back Anthony Dixon will visit the Buffalo Bills as a free agent.

Dixon tweeted the news Thursday evening:

Dixon sat third on the 49ers' depth chart last season behind Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter. In 16 games played last season, Dixon 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.
