After two torn ACLs, Hixon expects to remain with Giants

New York Giants wide receiver Domenik Hixon, who has played only two games the past two seasons after tearing his right ACL twice, is "hoping to finalize a contract very soon" to return to the team, his agent Eric Metz told The Star-Ledger on Tuesday.

Hixon, 27, had a $600,000 base salary last season and earned a $250,000 roster bonus, according to the newspaper, but tore his right ACL in Week 2. He had suffered the same injury at a minicamp in June 2010.

With Mario Manninghamexpecting to leave the Giants as a free agent, Hixon could get a chance for increased playing time if he is fully recovered.

Hixon, who had four catches for 50 yards and a touchdown last season, has 63 catches for 838 yards and four touchdowns in his six-year career.

He played his first two seasons in Denver.
