Pittsburgh Steelers interested in signing talented wide-out

Pittsburgh Steelers are going through the stages of revamping their offense, and it looks like they now have their eye on signing former Indianapolis Colts wide-receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey. 

Last season's Super Bowl showed the effectiveness of the impact player, with Percy Havin's impact on big plays showing how important players with raw speed can be in the NFL. 

After a few years in the wilderness, the Steelers are now ready to do business with a player with those recognised qualities, as they plan to meet Heyward-Bey imminently. 

The former Oakland and Indianapolis player has plenty of speed, and a move to the Steelers at the age of 27 could see him play the peak years of his career in Pittsburgh.

The prospect of hooking up with two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is something that is likely to tempt Heyward-Bey to put pen to paper when he meets the Steelers.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writer Ed Bouchette tweeted today, "WR Darrius Heyward-Bey to visit #Steelers Wed. 7th overall pick in 2009. UFA. Team has just under $400K in cap room."
