The recent, periodic flurries of tweets from Colts owner Jim Irsay have made it clear that the Colts are and have been pursuing a receiver.
As Irsay said Sunday, it’s not current Giants receiver Victor Cruz. As a source with knowledge of the situation told PFT on Sunday night, it’s also not former Raiders receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey.
Cut on Tuesday, the seventh overall pick in the 2009 draft hasn’t generated much buzz. However, we’re told that the Jets have interest in Heyward-Bey.
It’s unclear at this point whether Heyward-Bey has interest in the Jets.
The former Maryland speedster seemed to be on the verge of breaking out in 2011, with 975 receiving yards on 65 catches. But his production dropped by roughly a third in 2012, so the Raiders dropped the remainder of his pre-rookie wage scale contract.
