  • Panthers sign former Giant WR Domenik Hixon

    Panthers agreed to terms with WR Domenik Hixon, formerly of the Giants, on a one-year contract.
    Per CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, the Browns were also "very interested." Joining Chase Blackburn, Hixon is the second ex-Giant new Panthers GM Dave Gettleman has signed away from his former team in as many weeks. All the way back from the second tear of his right ACL last season, Hixon caught 39 passes for 567 yards and two touchdowns as he played extensive snaps in place of a banged-up Hakeem Nicks. Also a capable return man, Hixon adds credibility to a Panthers receiver corps that remains thin on experienced talent behind Steve Smith. Hixon is much better than 2012 third receiver Louis Murphy and could wind up pushing Brandon LaFell for snaps.
