The Indianapolis Colts next free agent target is receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey.
Indy, which has already signed eight players from other teams, has invited Heyward-Bey for a two-day visit that was supposed to begin Monday. The information was first posted on the team's website.
Oakland took Heyward-Bey with the seventh overall pick in the draft in 2009 but never lived up to the hype. In four seasons, he has 140 career receptions for 2,071 yards and 11 touchdown catches.
He was released by the Raiders earlier this month.
The Colts see Heyward-Bey as a possible replacement for Donnie Avery, who was Indy's second-leading receiver last season. He signed with Kansas City in free agency.

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.

Crazy Colts Fan - Jim Irsay's Big Free Agent Wide Reeiver is Darius Heyward-Bey
About a week ago Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay told the Twitter universe in a rather creative way that the Colts were looking to make a big splash in the free agency market by signing a big name wide receiver.
Well, his tweets made it sound as if he had someone in mind, but...
It was reported earlier today that Carson Palmer isn’t willing to restructure his contract to help the Oakland Raiders.
If the Raiders decide to keep Palmer, he’ll account for over $15 million against the cap in 2013. If he ends up getting released he’ll account for just over $9 million, but the Raiders will save $6 million per Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times.
"As noted Monday, it's possible that we may have seen the last of Carson Palmer in an Oakland Raiders uniform, as it's "highly unlikely" that the QB will take a pay cut, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. The Raiders now have three options: hang on to Palmer and pay him his $13 million for 2013, trade him or release him (ESPN)."
According to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com, the Oakland Raiders are interested in free agent cornerback Mike Jenkins.

With quarterback Carson Palmer “highly unlikely” to accept a
pay cut from the Oakland Raiders – according to Adam Schefter of ESPN – it looks
more likely that the team will elect to part ways with the veteran. If that
happens, the Arizona Cardinals could be one of the teams to express interest in
Palmer, according to Pro Football Talk.
Interesting: now "highly unlikely...
Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic expects to see the Cardinals show interest in QB Carson Palmer if the Raiders decide to part ways with him in the next few weeks.
Somers adds that the Cardinals don’t appear to be targeting a quarterback in the first-round, but could look to add someone later in the draft.
