WR Darrius Heyward-Bey To Visit Lions On Wednesday

Peter Aiken

If the Colts want to sign the former Raiders receiver, they better do it today.

If the Colts intend to sign free agent wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, it seems they better do so today. Per Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, Heyward-Bey is scheduled to meet with the Lions on Wednesday.

As is sometimes the case when it comes to free agency, if a player leaves a city he's visiting, chances are he will sign somewhere else.

As our own Nick Ragsdale reported last night, via Twitter, that during a conference call with season ticket holders, Colts general manager Ryan Grigson seemed confident that Indy would be able to ink Heyward-Bey soon.

The issue with Heyward-Bey might be the length of his contract. Free agents still looking for teams now are generally offered one-year deals. However, Detroit is much more desperate at the WR position than Indianapolis is right now. They might be willing to overpay for Heyward-Bey's services.
