According to ProFootballWeekly.com, San Francisco 49ers running back Anthony Dixon is ready to fight for a roster spot after losing weight this offseason and now being in the best shape of his life.

“Acknowledging that he could have a very difficult time making the 49ers’ final roster, we hear RB Anthony Dixon is determined to make it very difficult for the team to cut him. Daily team observers tell us the third-year running back, who has been plagued by weight issues, is in the best shape of his life,” PFW reported.

With the addition of LaMichael James and Brandon Jacobs this offseason, Dixon is going to have to play with a sense of urgency.
