The Colts have agreed to terms with wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey

Posted by coltsindianapolis on April 1, 2013 – 9:13 pm

The Indianapolis Colts today agreed to terms with free agent wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey.

“We feel great about acquiring a talented player in Darrius Heyward-Bey,” said General Manager Ryan Grigson. “He’s big, strong and shows toughness in traffic and after the catch. He’s got elite finishing speed that’s as good as there is in the NFL. With this staff, this team and overall culture we’re building here in Indy, we felt strongly that he was the right player and person at the wide receiver position for us moving forward.”

Heyward-Bey, 6-2, 216 pounds, has recorded 140 receptions for 2,071 yards and 11 touchdowns since being selected by the Oakland Raiders with the seventh overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft.

Over the last four seasons, he led the Raiders in receptions and receiving yards, while finishing second in touchdowns behind Denarius Moore (12).

In 2012, Heyward-Bey started 14 games and compiled 41 receptions for 606 yards and a career-high five touchdowns. In 2011, he had one of his most productive seasons, totaling career bests in receptions (64) and receiving yards (975), to go along with four touchdowns. He also registered three 100-yard receiving performances for the year, including a career-high 155-yard game against Detroit (12/18/11).

In 2010, Heyward-Bey reeled in 26 receptions for 366 yards and a touchdown. His top performance of the season came against Seattle in Week 8, when he notched his first career 100-yard receiving game (105 yards) and scored on a career-long 69-yard reception.

2013 OPPONENT LOOK: OAKLAND RAIDERS

Posted by Kevin Bowen on February 23, 2013 – 10:31 am

Oakland Raiders Head Coach Dennis Allen speaks to the media at the 2013 NFL Combine. Allen and the Raiders will travel to Indianapolis this fall for a regular season matchup.

Oakland Raiders Head Coach Dennis Allen speaks to the media at the 2013 NFL Combine. Allen and the Raiders will travel to Indianapolis this fall for a regular season matchup.

For the first time since 2004, the Oakland Raiders will head east for a regular season matchup with the Indianapolis Colts.

The Raiders coaching staff has had a very busy offseason taking part in the Senior Bowl by coaching the North team.

“It was an outstanding experience for us, for our staff to be able to be there and see those players up close and personal and evaluate, not how they play the game of football, but really what types of people they really are,” Allen said.

“The ability to get to know those guys a little bit gives us some inside information and helps us make a better decision on draft day.”

Allen and his staff feel that they have a bit of a leg up on some of the other team’s around the league after spending a week in Mobile working hands-on with numerous players that will hear their name called come late April.

After a 4-12 regular season, the Raiders carry the No. 3 pick into this year’s draft and will evaluate all options in helping to improve their roster.

“What we got to do is we’ve got to begin to identify what’s out there and what’s available in the draft as well as through free agency, both with our own players we had last year and also with what’s out there on the market and try to categorize where you think you might be able to fill needs, whether you’re going to do it through free agency or whether this is a draft that’s deep enough that you can do it through that,” Allen said.

In Allen’s first-year as Raiders head coach, Oakland was 3-4 heading into the month of November and in the middle of a crowded AFC West.

The Raiders sputtered down the stretch, losing eight of their last nine and never scored over 21 points.

Allen is optimistic though that with an established staff, there will be success in Year 2.

“Last year it was the Senior Bowl when I got hired,” Allen said. “We’d just completed the staff and really gotten our feet on the ground.

“This offseason we’ve had some time to hit the ground running a little bit and I think we have a clear plan of what we’re trying to get done and what we want to get accomplished this year.”
