Darrius Heyward-Bey Needs to Have a Big 2011

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that new Raiders coach Hue Jackson thinks former first-round pick Darrius Heyward-Bey needs to step up in 2011.

Raiders head coach Hue Jackson didn’t hesitate to say on Friday that wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey needs to step up in 2011. “There’s no question,” Jackson said. “As I said we need more out of every last one of our players. Is he one of the players that need to step up and bring more to the table? Yes he is and I think they all do and I think they all understand that because that’s how I conduct business. I want the best out of our players, I expect it, I demand it, and I’m going to get it.” Heyward-Bey showed improvement in 2010, but only because his rookie campaign was so lackluster. He’s a poor bet to break out this season.
