Domenik Hixon gets another shot with Giants

Domenik Hixon has played in only two games the last two seasons because he has torn the ACL in his right knee twice.

The New York Giants are giving the veteran wide receiver and return man another shot as they have signed him.

“They gave me an opportunity when I got released from Denver (in 2007),” Hixon said in a press release, according to Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger. “And then these past two years with knee injuries they stuck with me. They could have cut me and let me be on my way and be done with me. But they didn’t do that. They treated me the same and I really appreciate that.

"I know a lot of times in the NFL loyalty isn’t that big. But in this situation I really felt like I wanted to be here. They helped me out time and time again. I wanted to stay here and repay that.”

Hixon believes he will be ready for the beginning of training camp and he will likely be able to do some work during the club’s offseason program. Hixon has been a valuable contributor to the Giants in the past and a solid player in the locker room, making it an easy decision for the club.

“I personally feel like I’m further along (during this rehab as compared to the last) with the strength and the coordination, different things like that that,” Hix said. “Is it because I know what’s coming and I’m prepared for it? But I feel real good. And that’s what’s kind of scary about it. It wasn’t a point this time where I had a ton of pain or a ton of swelling.

“We’re just fine-tuning things now. My goal when I get back is to be at full speed and show the training staff and everybody else I’m physically ready to play and ready for it for years to come."
