That's awesome. Looks like they are focusing on role players that can double as STers.

STer for this year, Fred Jackson's replacement next year. Next a bad plan if it works.

it wouldnt be too strange to carry both a larger RB, and a FB.... but obviously no guarantee with that statement

So if I'm reading this correctly, you would like the signing because we need a bigger back on this team?

...unless they're trying to establish that ST core that Marrone said was lacking in 2013...

He's not tashard choice.  Kids a tough runner and would allow us to bypass drafting a RB this year. I loved Dixon in college but didn't see too much out of him in SF and I watch almost all of their games.  I'd still rather have Fred at the goal line.

Easy now.  Don't count on anything from this guy as a runner.  He's not a goal line back nor anywhere near worthy or capable of being a future Fred replacement.  Over 4 seasons he managed a whole 3 yards a carry behind that elite 49ers line.  Dixon is mediocre at best carrying the ball.  He's maintained a roster spot in the NFL due to special teams and ability to fill in at fullback.  

That said, it'd be a decent signing for his contributions on special teams, which is clearly a priority for the Bills this offseason.  This would be another free agent signing that's mainly for special teams and secondarily for depth at their position.
