Running back Anthony Dixon has tweeted from his verified account that he'll sign a contract with the Buffalo Bills on Saturday morning.

Dixon was at One Bills Drive today for a free-agent visit.

He has spent the past four years with the San Francisco 49ers, never missing a game and scoring two touchdowns each season.

His best year was as a sixth-round pick straight out of Mississippi State. He rushed for a career-high 237 yards, but has been stuck behind Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter.

Dixon likely will be the third running back for Buffalo, an upgrade over the inexperienced Ronnie Wingo.
