The Indianapolis Colts have agreed to terms with former Raiders wide receiver Darrius-Heyward Bey, the team announced. Adam Schefter says it is a one-year deal worth up to $3 million.
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.
