Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay hinted several times last week that his team had interest in a big name wide receiver.  Rumors floated that it might be Victor Cruz, but Irsay shot that down. CBS Sports is reporting that former Oakland Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey is in town meeting with the Colts for two days starting today. Could a deal possibly get done?  Heyward-Bey isn’t Cruz but he would definitely be an upgrade over anyone opposite Reggie Wayne. Heyward-Bey was the seventh overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft even though he never lived up to such a lofty status.

Darrius Heyward-Bey to visit Colts

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that the Indianapolis Colts plan to bring in former Oakland Raiders receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey in for a visit, possibily today.

Indianapolis Colts sign G Donald Thomas

Donald Thomas proved that he deserved a starting job in 2013 after playing very well for the Patriots in 7 spot starts in 2012. Despite his limited playing time, he still finished the year as ProFootballFocus’ 17th rated guard. He was a better run blocker than pass protector, but allowed just 1 sack, 2 hits, and 9 hurries, while committing just 3 penalties and he has the versatility...

Welp, you can probably cross Dwight Freeney off your list

With the Saints jumping in on the Freeney sweepstakes this week, things got a lot more complicated. So that leaves the Broncos, Patriots, Saints and Steelers as all apparent suitors for the services of Dwight Freeney. With so much interest, and with Dumervil inking a nice deal with the Ravens, it seems Freeney has a little bit of leverage and thus some salary demands. Colleague...
