The Indianapolis Colts bolstered their wide receivers corps Monday with the signing of free agent Darrius Heyward-Bey.A first-round draft pick of the Oakland Raiders in 2009, Heyward-Bey has 140 receptions for 2,071 yards and 11 touchdowns in his four-year career.

At 6-foot-2, 216 pounds, Heyward-Bey gives the Colts a bigger receiver to team with Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton.

“He's big, strong and shows toughness in traffic and after the catch,” Colts general manager Ryan Grigson said. “He's got elite finishing speed that's as good as there is in the NFL. With this staff, this team and overall culture we're building here in Indy, we felt strongly that he was the right player and person at the wide receiver position for us moving forward.”

Heyward-Bey had his best season in 2011 with 64 catches for 975 yards and four touchdowns.
