EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — As the Giants again begin the process of sorting out a dilemma among the wide receivers, Victor Cruz and Domenik Hixon will have to provide much-needed stability.

For Cruz, picking up the offseason slack for Mario Manningham’s free-agent defection to San Francisco and key playmaker Hakeem Nicks’ fractured fifth metatarsal, won’t be as hard as the task that faces Hixon. Cruz’s 82 catches and a team-record 1,536 yards gave him that credibility.

But Hixon has to prove that his recovery from right ACL tears the last two years is complete, and that his old speed and reliability has returned.

That process has already started, as Hixon and Cruz lined up opposite each other Wednesday in their second organized team activity session as first-unit wideouts for the Giants.

“I feel great,” Hixon said. “To be honest, it’s been a long two years.”
