After missing the entire 2010 season, Hixon managed to play in just two games during 2011, catching four passes for 50 yards and one touchdown before tearing his anterior cruciate ligament for the second straight season in late September.
"I Just got done officially signing back with the Superbowl Champs!!!
#blessed #readytoplay," he tweeted. "Thank you to the best Fans in the world and the Giants for giving me an opportunity to play the game I love!"
Hixon's best season came in 2008, when he caught 43 receptions for 596 yards and two touchdowns. It was the only year the wide receiver played in all 16 regular season outings.
