Dixon was initially a sixth-round pick out of Mississippi State during the 2010 NFL Draft. With the 49ers already loaded at the running back position and with a share of fullbacks, the team had no reason to re-sign him unless it was for special teams.
On offense, Dixon was used sparingly as a fullback as well as a running back when the game was already decided. However, he scored the 49ers final rushing touchdown of the season on a one-yard rush over a pile of offensive lineman against the Seattle Seahawks.
In 64 regular season games with the 49ers, Dixon accumulated 458 rushing yards and eight touchdowns.
