The Browns have a very mild interest in former Akron Zips receiver Domenik Hixon, a league source told the Plain Dealer.

Hixon, 28, is an unrestricted free agent from the Giants, where he was part of two Super Bowl Championships.

Mostly a reserve receiver, Hixon caught 39 passes for 567 yards and two touchdowns last season. Overall, he's started 13 of his 61 NFL games.
