LAKE FOREST-The Bears have signed free agent receiver Domenik Hixon. Hixon had only seven receptions for 55 yards last season with the Carolina Panthers. Before that he had five productive seasons with the Giants.

His best season was 2008 when he had 43 receptions for 596 yards and two touchdowns.

Hixon gives Jay Cutler another big target at 6-2. He could become the Bears' third receiver if Earl Bennett is not brought back next season.
