The New York Giants signed wide receiver and kick returner Domenik Hixon to a one-year contract. He missed the majority of the season with a torn right anterior cruciate ligament.

“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.

For his career, Hixon has 59 receptions for 788 yards and three touchdowns and three rushing attempts for 18 yards. Hixon has returned 48 punts for 530 yards and a touchdown and 80 kickoffs for 1,966 yards and a touchdown. He also has 25 career special teams tackles.
