There will be another weapon in the AFC South in 2013.

The Colts have reached a contract agreement with former Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey.

Heyward-Bey, 26, was the ninth overall pick in the 2009 draft. He'll be a nice compliment to a receiving group that already includes Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton.

While he never quite lived up to his first-round status, Heyward-Bey has shown flashes of being a good player.

In 2012, he caught 41 balls for 606 yards and five touchdowns. But in 2011, he had 64 catches for 975 yards and four scores.

Heyward-Bey's deal is reportedly worth up to $3 million, with $1.5 million guaranteed for a year.
