Heyward-Bey to visit with Detroit

Posted by Chris Brown on March 26, 2013 – 9:33 am

Despite Stevie Johnson’s best efforts to recruit Oakland free agent receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, he’s now on his second free agent visit in as many days somewhere else.

A day after visiting with the Indianapolis Colts, Heyward-Bey is reportedly visiting with the Detroit Lions today. That according to the Detroit Free-Press. After the dismissal of Titus Young and Ryan Broyles ACL injury, Detroit needs an outside complement to Calvin Johnson.

Buffalo is also looking for a legitimate outside receiving threat  to allow them to move Johnson into the slot.

Heyward-Bey to visit Colts

Posted by Chris Brown on March 25, 2013 – 1:08 pm

Stevie and DHB

According to the Indianapolis Colts official team website the team is hosting Oakland free agent WR Darrius Heyward-Bey.

The visit is supposed to take place from Monday night into Tuesday in Indianapolis. Heyward-Bey, a former first-round pick of the Raiders, was released by Oakland on March 12th.

Heyward-Bey (6’2″ 216) is coming off a 41-catch season with 606 receiving yards and five touchdowns. The outside receiver is certainly the type of vertical threat that can stretch a defense.

The Colts are looking for a third wideout to join Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton in their receiving corps.

Bills WR Stevie Johnson has been actively trying to recruit Heyward-Bey even spending some time with him this past week.

Stevie wouldn’t mind adding Heyward-Bey

Posted by Chris Brown on March 13, 2013 – 4:35 pm

Bills WR Stevie Johnson knows his team is in the market to add an outside receiver so they can move him into the slot. Johnson has been checking who is available and wouldn’t mind adding a Raiders receiver that was recently released.

Knowing Darrius Heyward-Bey was released by the Raiders, Johnson doesn’t mind doing recruiting for his team.

“As far as the recruiting goes I want the Bills to be on top,” Johnson told Buffalobills.com. “Whether it’s this player or that player these guys are elite athletes. You put them on our team then you have an all-star. I’m not saying we’re going to get everybody, but DHB was recently released from the Raiders. Why not? Hey DH come check out Buffalo. Come take a visit or something and hopefully something works out. What I’m saying doesn’t mean the Bills are going to do it. I want to bring the Bills to the playoffs and hopefully a Super Bowl so why not recruit?

Heyward-Bey had 41 receptions for 606 yards and a career-high five touchdowns in 2012.
