In case you missed it: RB Anthony Dixon on the trading block

Oct 28, 2013 at 10:27 AM--




Unless you follow us on Facebook, this piece of news may have fallen between the cracks. Just prior to yesterday's 49ers and Jaguars kickoff in London, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported that the San Francisco 49ers were interested in trading running back Anthony Dixon.


Dixon has been a key player on special teams and has been occasionally used in third-down situations. For the season, Dixon has rushed 15 times for 35 yards and 2 touchdowns. On Sunday, Dixon replaced wide receiver Kyle Williams, who struggled returning the ball on special teams. Dixon's lone kickoff return was for 47 yards.

Dixon was a sixth-round selection in the 2010 NFL Draft. A trade would make sense. The 49ers need to clear up six roster spots for players returning from injury and Dixon is scheduled to become a free agent at the end of this season. Although, it is unlikely that the 49ers would be able to get much for Dixon.

The trade deadline is on Tuesday at 1 PM Pacific.

Rice joined 95.7 The Game on Monday morning and made his case for a deal after being asked if the move is something San Francisco should pursue. "Yeah, I think they should (trade for him)," Rice said on The Morning Roast. "You've got to look at all your options, and you look at Deshaun Watson, and there are rumors that he might go to Miami, he might go to the Patriots, and also the 49ers."

ESPN makes a case for 'surprisingly comfortable' 49ers to keep Jimmy Garoppolo

The San Francisco 49ers finished the season with a disappointing record of 6-10. It was so disappointing because the team's hopes were much loftier. The 49ers were coming off a Super Bowl appearance and focused on returning to the big game. Injuries changed those plans. San Francisco's roster was almost unrecognizable after only a handful of games. Added to that, the team spent the last month of the season in Arizona after being forced out of Santa Clara County due to COVID-19 restrictions banning contact sports. "The second week of the year, we didn't have the same team," head coach Kyle Shanahan said last week. "I think we had a pretty unprecedented
