Dixon tweeted that the deal will become official Saturday, meaning he's poised to join a backfield that already features C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson. While Dixon won't be any higher than third on the depth chart, he could see some goal-line work and also offers the versatility to play fullback in a pinch.
Dixon carried the ball twice for one yard and a touchdown during the 49ers' loss to the Seahawks in Sunday's NFC Championship.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Dixon will compete for a back-up running back job but should really make the team because of his special teams play and his ability to mentor young players. He has averaged fewer than 30 carries and 90 yards in each of his last two seasons and shouldn't be counted on for much more heading into 2013.

2011

Dixon split backup duties with Brian Westbrook last year, but when Frank Gore went down with a season-ending hip injury, the 31-year-old veteran outplayed him. Dixon got just 3.4 YPC, and his running style is best described as plodding. Westbrook isnít going to return to San Francisco, but the team drafted Kendall Hunter in the fourth round, and GM Trent Baalke has already declared him the No. 2 back, rendering Dixon nothing more than San Franciscoís RB3.

2010

Dixon showed up to offseason OTA workouts slightly out of shape and missed practice time due to a hamstring injury. He didn't give off the best first impression, but he's still expected to battle with Glen Coffee for the number two running back job during training camp. Even if Dixon is relegated to third-string, he could end up in the mix for short-yardage carries.
