Reporting Chris “Mac” McClain
T-Bone said to me this morning that Gettleman’s sounds like it would be a bargain shopping department store. If it was, it would be fully stocked with quality veteran role players who come cheap.
The latest bargain addition for the Panthers is former Giants WR Domenik Hixon. He is the second player to be added from GM Dave Gettleman’s former team. He adds more championship experience and he also is a guy that would make a real nice 3rd WR for the Panthers in 2013.
In that role in New York last year, Hixon had 39 catches and averaged over 14 yards a catch. He had almost half of his catches over the middle (19) and he did a nice job moving the chains for the G-Men. 24 of his 39 catches went for first downs or TDs.
He is an upgrade over last year’s #3 guy Louis Murphy (who signed with the Giants) and is another solid but not spectacular move by Gettleman. Is anyone else getting the feeling that Gettleman is doing more on a shoestring budget than Marty could do with cap room in free agency? Lets hope he keeps shopping at Gettleman’s.
