Hixon, 29, was a disappointment as a receiver pickup in Carolina last year, but is a productive special teamer coming at a cheap cost. He will compete to replace Devin Hester on return. Don't expect Hixon to play any offense.

Domenik Hixon caught two passes for 18 yards and a touchdown in Carolina's Week 16 win over the Saints.

Hixon was only in the game because Steve Smith (knee) was sidelined. Regardless of Smith's status, Hixon isn't going to make a Week 17 impact.
