AFTER TWO TORN ACL'S, HIXON EXPECTS TO REMAIN WITH GIANTS (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d8274850b/article/after-two-torn-acls-hixon-expects-to-remain-with-giants)

"New York Giants (/teams/newyorkgiants/profile?team=NYG) wide receiver
Domenik Hixon (/players/domenikhixon/profile?id=HIX462619), who has
played only two games the past two seasons after tearing his right ACL twice, is
"hoping to finalize a contract very soon" to return to the team, his agent Eric
Metz told The Star-Ledger (http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/02/agent_for_giants_domenik_hixon.html) on Tuesday.
<p id="yui_3_4_1_1_1330490297796_4676">Hixon, 27, had a $600,000 base salary last
season and earned a $250,000 roster bonus, according to the newspaper, but tore
his right ACL in Week 2. He had suffered the same injury at a minicamp in June
2010.</p>


With Mario Manningham (/players/mariomanningham/profile?id=MAN547041) expecting to leave (http://www.nfl.com/goto?id=v) the Giants as a free agent, Hixon could get a
chance for increased playing time if he is fully recovered.</p>


Hixon, who had four catches for 50 yards and a touchdown last season, has 63
catches for 838 yards and four touchdowns in his six-year career.</p>


He played his first two seasons in Denver."</p>

Big if, but if he can come back healthy he could be very serviceable.

T2 has the same road ahead of him....</P>


if either of them are on the team it will be small $$ and incentive/roster based...</P>

Goodness.

We need to move on from these injury risk type players.

T2 and Hixon really????

I'm not taking a flyer on either of those guys and Goff would be on the bubble.

We need younger, healthier, faster players.

We need younger, healthier, faster players.I feel the same way. Although bringing Goff back should be an upgrade still. Not so sure if we exactly need T2 and Hixon though.
