As long as there wasn't much guaranteed, it was a good signing. Hixon is looking to have a breakout year with Newton and so are we. You can't have too many offensive weapons.

From the video I have seen on Hixon, he makes some really tough catches. This is a very solid signing and he should be the best 3rd WR option Cam has had so far. The third WR option for Cam's first two years here have been pretty damn bad--this is a nice upgrade over that.

Now if we can get cam to go through his progressions, Hixon should have a good season, and by default elevate the opportunities for smitty Lafell and Olsen.

Good news. Gettleman is doing some good things with a limited budget.

Let's hope he does better than D.J. Hacket.

dj hackett was awesome... but insanely injury-prone and it's why he never caught on with seattle or us, subsequently

hixon is a great option if he can stay healthy.

Big difference between the two....

Last 2 years Gettis has 0 rec, 0 yards, 0 TDs

Hardy at least had 50+ tackles, 7 sacks, 3 FFs the 2 seasons prior to the talk last year. Plus, most people just doubted if Hardy was ready to be an every down DE...not that he didn't have a spot here.


There were a number of people here last year saying Hardy should be cut. Granted, it was mostly the "sky is falling" gloom crowd and trolls, but it wasn't an uncommon sentiment.

Hixon is going into his 6th season and has played with a great QB....the talk of him now finally breaking out is a bit much

King is right. Odds are this isn't the type move that makes you better

It is because he is better than all but two of our wide receivers. Adding better talent makes you better. How is this hard to understand?

He had 1400 yards in 5 years....

Define better? Maybe some old Louis Murphy threads should be bumped....or Legatron threads when they were signed
