Cabot: Browns Show "Mild Interest" in WR Domenik Hixon

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer, the Cleveland Browns have shown a "mild interest" in free agent wide receiver Domenik Hixon. Hixon, who is 28 years old, has spent the past six seasons as a member of the New York Giants. He was originally a fourth-round draft pick in 2006 by the Denver Broncos.

If Hixon were to sign with the Browns, he would fulfill the role of a veteran receiver, possibly drawing comparisons to how Joe Jurevicius was used by Rob Chudzinski back in 2007. Hixon has really only had two seasons in which he has received productive playing time, but one of those was in 2012: due to injuries to Hakeem Nicks, Hixon started three games and finished the year with 39 catches for 567 yards and 2 touchdowns.

The Browns don't seem like the only team in the market for Hixon, though. Jason La Canfora reported that he met with the Oakland Raiders a few days ago. Cabot also noted that Hixon will visit the Carolina Panthers on Monday. Nonetheless, now that Brent Grimes is off the Browns' radar now that he is a member of the Dolphins, our attention can shift to the Akron native, Hixon (and, hopefully, someone like...Sheldon Brown?).
