In the continuing search to find a complimentary receiver for Calvin Johnson, a report on Tuesday suggests that the Detroit Lions have scheduled a visit with free agent wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey. Nate Burleson is slated to return after re-working his deal but he will be turning 32 prior to the start of the 2013 regular season. The Lions thought they had found a speedy threat in Titus Young, but his insane behavior led to his ultimate release. The Lions also have second-year receiver Ryan Broyles on the roster but he came with injury concerns and is now coming off a torn ACL injury.

Oh hey, it’s an uneventful Wednesday in late March, so here’s an incredible video of a lamppost smashing through a bus windshield in China. Pretty remarkable that the driver survived.
