Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer reported Saturday that the Cleveland Browns have "mild interest" in Hixon, according to a league source. The 28-year-old wideout spent the past six seasons in New York as a secondary target for quarterback Eli Manning.

Cabot also reported that Hixon will visit the Carolina Panthers on Monday.

Hixon, who reportedly has visited with the Oakland Raiders and Detroit Lions, caught 39 passes for 567 yards and a pair of touchdowns in 2012. He has started in only 13 games with the Giants since 2007 and he wouldn't play more than a supporting role with the Browns behind Greg Little and Josh Gordon. With Josh Cribbs out the door, the Browns are in the market for a kick returner, something Hixon did for spurts with the Giants.

If he winds up with the Browns, Hixon instantly would be the oldest pass-catcher on a roster filled with youngsters.
