“It’s one of those things, they gave me an opportunity when I got released from Denver," Hixon said.“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 is expected to be ready for training camp.
"I’m chomping at the bit," Hixon said.
