Bills agreed to terms with RB Anthony Dixon, formerly of the 49ers.
It's not an ideal landing spot. He's not going to play much on offense but will be a valuable contributor chasing down kickoffs and punts. Dixon, 26, is a battering ram at 6-foot-1 and 233 pounds. He'll operate as the No. 3 back behind C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, who have combined to miss 13 games the past three years.
ESPN's Paul Gutierrez reports Matt Schaub is the Raiders top quarterback target, but Mark Sanchez, free agent Josh Freeman, and free agent Michael Vick are also on their list.
Two of the four, Schaub and Sanchez, are not even free agents, though that is likely to change in the near future. The list is depressing, but it is even more depressing that each of these signal callers would be an upgrade over the quarterbacks currently on the Raiders' roster. Oakland would be wise to invest in a quarterback early in this year's draft.
Bills agreed to terms with ILB Brandon Spikes, formerly of the Patriots, on a one-year deal.

The Bills foreshadowed this signing when they announced second-year LB Kiko Alonso would move to weak-side linebacker, clearing the way for Spikes to man the middle. Spikes, one of the best run-stuffing linebacker in the league, will provide a solid anchor in the middle of the Bills' new 4-3 scheme.
