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.

I'm not worried about 49ers' Trey Lance...and you shouldn't be either

By Marc Adams

San Francisco 49ers fans are fed up, and rightfully so, at the way the team's young quarterback Trey Lance is being treated in the media. For months now, there have been rumors and statements, mostly from national media types, designating Lance a bust, or suggesting the 49ers are concerned about him. As you'll recall, Lance only played ten quarters of football last season. Can ten quarters really tell us anything? Of course not. Especially when it comes to NFL rookies trying to play QB. It's baffling that this agenda is being pushed. But the ferocity at which it keeps coming is disturbing. Either the 49ers are allowing it because they believe it somehow gives them a competitive advantage, or they're pushing it to keep Jimmy Garopollo a hot commodity on the trade
