Hixon Signed

Carolina nabbed WR Domenik Hixon, despite supposed offers from the Broncos and Browns.

The former Giant announced through his agent that Hixon was coming to Carolina.  The move may fully solidify the unit, dropping Hixon in potential competition with Brandon LaFell to start, but definitely leaves him with a fight with Ted Ginn for the 3rd spot; Louis Murphy, a Panther last year, may take that role for the Giants that Hixon just vacated.

It also leaves the team's youth at WR - ranging from fourth year guys David Gettis and Armanti Edwards down to the younger Kealoha Pilares and Joe Adams - fighting for one, potentially two spots.  Of that group, only Gettis hasn't been used much as a return specialist (he did return 8 kicks in 2010), but none of that group will find much edge in being able to return - Ginn is likely going to show as a better return specialist than any of them.

The move pushes Carolina more toward the run on DT and OL that it, hopefully, will take in the upcoming draft.
