Panthers agree to deal with Domenik Hixon

The Panthers’ perpetual search for complementary receivers has led them to a player new general manager Dave Gettleman is familiar with.

According to Jason LaCanfora of CBSSports.com, former Giants wideout Domenik Hixon has agreed to terms with the Panthers, after interest from the Browns.

Hixon could step into the third wideout role vacated when former Panthers wideout Louis Murphy took his spare-part job with the Giants.

The Panthers also added Ted Ginn this offseason, giving them plenty of experienced competition for a young group with no sure things beyond starters Steve Smith and Brandon LaFell.
