Free agent wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey is receiving interest from the New York Jets, reports ProFootballTalk. 

Heyward-Bey was released by the Raiders earlier this offseason after spending four seasons with the team.

He was the seventh overall pick in 2009 and had a breakout season in 2011 when he caught 64 passes for 975 yards. However, he struggled last season with only 606 yards, and management decided to pull the strings on Heyward-Bey and his $7.9 million salary.
