Found March 26, 2013 on BlackSportsOnline:
    Former Oakland Raiders receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey will visit the Detroit Lions on Wednesday according to Dave Birkett of The Detroit Free Press. Heyward-Bey recently also took a visit to the Indianapolis Colts. The Lions have had a great off-season thus far, signing running back Reggie Bush and safety Glover Quinn among others. One of the question marks though is a reliable second receiving option other than Calvin Johnson. While Heyward-Bey has underachieved since being selected with the 7th overall pick back in the 2009 NFL Draft, one thing you cannot teach players is speed. And with Heyward-Bey running a reported 4.30 40 back at the combine, he certainly possesses that aspect. We’ll have to see what the asking price for Heyward-Bey is and whether or not the Lions are willing to make an offer. Adding him could make the new greatest show on turf, that much more explosive.
