The Detroit Lions will host free-agent wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey on Wednesday, according to the Detroit Free Press. The former 2009 first-round draft pick of the Raiders spent Monday night and Tuesday in Indianapolis.
Both teams are looking for a deep threat -- a role the speedy Heyward-Bey can certainly fill. The Lions could use an outside receiver to play opposite Calvin Johnson after the team's messy breakup with Titus Young.
Heyward-Bey, 26, has spent the entirety of his four-year career in Oakland. His best season came in 2011, when he caught 64 passes for 975 yards. Though his overall production dipped last season, he did catch a career high five touchdown passes.
