Darrius Heyward-Bey to visit Colts

Former Oakland Raiders receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey will visit the Indianapolis Colts on Monday night and Tuesday, the team announced on its website.

The Raiders released the former first-round pick earlier this month.

For the past week, Colts owner Jim Irsay has been tweeting about an unidentified wide receiver his team has an interest in signing.

The Colts are in search of a third wide receiver to go with Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton.

The 26-year-old Heyward-Bey, who was drafted No. 7 overall by Oakland in 2009, had 41 receptions for 606 yards and a career-high five touchdown receptions last season.
