08:08 AM ET 03.25 | Perhaps this is the man Jim Irsay had been hinting about. The Colts are taking a look at free agent wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Heyward-Bey is expected to visit with the Colts soon, possibly as early as [Monday]. [Irsay] said on March 16 that the Colts were "very, very close" to a deal with a wide receiver, although he never revealed who he was talking about. There was speculation at the time that Heyward-Bey was the receiver Irsay was talking about, although if they're just planning the visit nine days later, it would be hard to call that "very, very close." Heyward-Bey was the seventh overall pick of the Raiders in the 2009 NFL draft.

Slow day when reporting on the #73 receiver in terms of receiving yds.

DHB had just shy of a thousand yards the year before last. the only reason his "production" dropped is because CP didn't throw to him much. He will do well wherever he goes.

The Raiders have fired just about every 1st round pick they have had since 2000 , the only ones they have on their roster are the Kicker Janikowski and the RB McFadden. They even released their last 1st rounder from 2010 Rolando McCain, I haven't heard of anyone going after him, he was the #8 overall pick in the draft. What no takers on Al Davis's very last 1st round pick before his death ?

All those unclaimed gems.

Seems odd that Carson would target him less, as Palmer through only for 2753 yds in 2011 of which Bey got 975, yet in 2012 he threw for 4018 and bey gets 606. So wonder why he wouldn't target the guy he accounted for over 1/3 of his yds the year before.

"Slow day when reporting on the #73 receiver in terms of receiving yds." Yes, but he was in a terrible system at Oakland, with bad QBs. He should do very well in Indy and this will be a great move. Indy's offense will be even better.

I hope for the Colts' sake this wasn't who Irsay was referring to.

I wish Green Bay would do something in Free Agency. At least take a hard look at a running back..

Make sure to kick the tires and check user the hood, after all it's from the Raider stables.
