The Gettleman pipeline could push another Giant to Carolina.
According to Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer, Hixon will visit the Panthers on Monday.
It’s not a surprise that new Panthers G.M. Dave Gettleman, who came to Carolina from the Giants, has interest in players he helped bring to New York.
In six years with the Giants (after one and change in Denver), Hixon has shown periodic flashes of significant potential, but he has never quite delivered. In 2012, he caught 39 passes for 569 yards in 13 games, with three starts.
Hixon ostensibly would fill the roster spot created by the departure of Louis Murphy, who signed with the Giants.
