Colts Beat Writer Says New Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey Is A Good Blocker

While new Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey certainly does have a reputation for drops, one Indianapolis Colts beat writer says the former first-round draft pick does excel in other areas of his game.

Immediately after it was announced that Heyward-Bey signed with the Steelers, Tom James of The Tribune-Star offered up some thoughts on the former Colts wide receiver.

James also added this tidbit as well.

Steelers wide receivers coach Richard Mann will certainly like Heyward-Bey’s ability to block, so hopefully all he has to do now is focus on fixing the drop problem that has plagued the Maryland product ever since he came into the league.

Should Heyward-Bey ultimately make the Steelers 53 man roster as a fourth or fifth wide receiver, he will have to play on special teams, so it’s encouraging to hear that he isn’t above doing that.
