News: The Pittsburgh Steelers and free agent wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey have agreed to terms on a one-year contract. The 27-year-old Heyward-Bey gives the Steelers the deep threat they lacked last season after Mike Wallace left via free agency for Miami. Heyward-Bey is the second wide receiver signed by the Steelers since free agency began. Pittsburgh and former New Orleans wideout Lance Moore agreed to a two-year deal last month. Impact: Heyward-Bey caught 29 passes for 307 yards and a touchdown in 11 games last season with Indianapolis. He spent the first four seasons of his career in Oakland, catching 140 passes for 2,071 yards and 11 touchdowns in 56 games with the Raiders before being released last spring.(STATS, 2:18pm)

News: The Steelers have signed Heyward-Bey to a one-year contract. Impact: In the wake of losing Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery in free agency, the Steelers were looking to bolster their depth at wideout, so they'll give Heyward-Bey -- who caught 29 passes for 309 yards and a TD with the Colts in 2013 -- a chance to bounce back in a Pittsburgh uniform. While Antonio Brown is the Steelers' clear top wideout option, Heyward-Bey joins the likes of Lance Moore, Markus Wheaton and Derek Moye in the competition for the 2014 wide receiver looks that don't go Brown's way.(RotoWire, )
