Given his ties to the organization, expect Gettleman to bring in a couple of former Giants. New York has a pair of free agent wideouts who are 28 or younger – Domenik Hixon and Ramses Barden. Hixon has more experience and has been productive in a part-time role. But the 6-foot-6, 224-pound Barden is the type of big, physical receiver who could thrive in the Panthers’ vertical passing game. The Panthers know Barden well: With Hixon and former UNC star Hakeem Nicks out for a Thursday night game in Charlotte last September, Barden made his only career start and dominated the Carolina secondary. Barden had nine catches for 138 yards, but only had four receptions the remainder of the season. He said last week he’s ready for a fresh start.
