Steelers sign WR Darrius Heyward-Bey to 1-year deal
The Steelers have added wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey on a one-year contract. The 2009 first-round bust caught just 29 passes in 16 games with the Colts last season. His game is very simple: Blazing speed and stone-covered hands. Heyward-Bey dropped six passes in 2013.
The Steelers are trying to catch magic in a bottle here, but since DHB can't catch much of anything, he shouldn't be more than veteran depth in a rebuilt receiving corps. Second-year wideout Markus Wheaton will be given every opportunity to be Pittsburgh's No. 2 WR.
