Hixon to visit Panthers on Monday

The Gettleman pipeline could push another Giant to Carolina.

Last week, it was linebacker Chase Blackburn.  Now, it could be receiver Domenik Hixon.

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.

The Raiders recently hosted Hixon, who also has drawn “very mild interest” in Cleveland, which makes it sound like an inner ear infection.

  1. Yeah, this guy has always done really well when given the opportunity. Always liked him. Caught a couple of tough breaks injury wise but has battled back. Underrated WR who would be a really good value signing for a team.

  2. Linking to Seinfeld clips is lame. Michael Richards is a disgusting human being and Jerry Seinfeld is one of the most overrated comics ever.

  3. Pretty decent player who just can not seem to stay healthy for a whole season.
    If he ever can do that he’s shown he could compete to be a #2 on some team eventually.
    But without staying on the field any spot is up in the air as someone else is being showcased to show off their skills every time he sits.
    In the NFL , if you give your roster spot enough ‘auditions’, sooner or later it will be gone.

  4. Hixon has a contract on the table with Detroit. The Lions offense is the next ‘Greatest Show on Turf”. Why wouldn’t this guy not want to play in the ‘D’??? See ya Hixon. You could have been part of something special. Go Lions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. This guy personifies the word “underrated”. I’d love to see him stay in Giants’ blue, but if it doesn’t happen, well, he’s been a heck of a Giant. Carolina will be getting a damn good receiver.
