UPDATE: 4/1/13 This is no April fools joke! Colts and Heyward-Bey have come to a contract agreement. The contract Heyward-Bey will sign is a one-year deal worth a maximum of $3 million, according to a person who has reviewed the contract details. Our receiving corp is looking mighty! #coltsnation!

3/25/13 My team is making moves this offseason! The Colts have announced Darrius Heyward-Bey’s visit on their official website, stating that he will be in town Monday night and Tuesday.

So it looks like the Indianapolis Colts’ “mystery wide receiver” has finally been uncovered. A little over a week ago, owner Jim Irsay said the team was close to getting an unnamed free-agent receiver.

Darrius Heyward Bey would be a sensible replacement for Donnie Avery who left the Colts in free agency. The Colts have a lot of weapons for Andrew Luck with Reggie Wayne, T.Y. Hilton and two young pass-catching tight ends, but the team lacks a potential No. 1 receiver for after Wayne retires. Heyward-Bey would fill a role more designed for veteran depth than anything so I wouldn’t rule out the Colts taking a WR high in the draft.

I see the Colts are definitely making headlines this offseason. I hope some of these big name signings pay off!

Thanks to loyal reader Eli for the tip!
