Default Rosevelt Colvin Signed

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/sports/5817469.html

Quote:
Free agent outside linebacker Rosevelt Colvin is going to visit the Texans on Wednesday.

Colvin, who is entering his 10th season and turns 31 in September, had four sacks in 10 starts for New England last season. He missed six starts because of a sprained foot but is healthy now.

The Texans are loaded with outside linebackers but none who have Colvin's credentials. Colvin, 6-3, 250, had 8 1/2 sacks in 2006, his last healthy season.

The Texans have been looking for an edge rusher to play opposite Mario Williams in passing situations. Colvin can play outside linebacker in a 4-3 or a 3-4. In the Patriots' 3-4 scheme, Colvin dropped down and rushed in passing situations.

Colvin said last week that the Cleveland Browns and New York Jets are among the teams showing interest in him.

Many of you know I love the Pats, and I would like this signing. That said, I wouldn't want him for much more than the veteran minimum.

I dont think he needs to come in to this team and try to be one of the leaders , rather he needs to simply fit in ..... he could be a role model for some but he should do that quietly ..... lead by example .

He will be a DE in Houston no way he plays linebacker here in H-town and he played DE at Purdue and with the Bears so he can do the job.

Default Re: Rosevelt Colvin to visit Texans

Capers and Casserly brought Colvin in for a free agent visit during the 2003 offseason. Colvin would have played OLB in the Texans 3-4. Eventually, Colvin signed with New England, saying that he wanted to play for a winner. He got his wish.

Default Re: Rosevelt Colvin to visit Texans

If his injury problem is indeed resolved, he could be a valuable acquisition. The Pats are known for their frugality and since Colvin would have counted $7.6 million against the team’s salary cap in 2008, and the Pats save $5.5 million, that and not injury could have very likely played the greatest role in his release.

FYI - I read the article over my Oatmeal this morning, and Megan Manfull wrote the article I'm almost positive.

I hope they can sign him. I do agree he is probably a situational 3rd down pass rushing end in our system, and if healthy, I think he could be a really good move for us, and help seal off the escape route on Mario's opposite side. Add in some push in the middle so the QB can't step up, and we could have a pretty damn good pass rush for the first time in our history.

EDIT - My fault. McClain wrote the piece on Colvin. She wrote the piece on Rick Smith's ext. Continue to McCain bash if it makes you feel better.

Default Re: Rosevelt Colvin to visit Texans

He was one of my favorite players back when he was with da bears. Considering we're still searching for someone opposite Mario to consistently generate some heat in the pass rush, he'd be worth a look for the right price. Sounds as if he already has some interest from some other teams, hopefully that hasn't driven up his demands too high.

Default Re: Rosevelt Colvin to visit Texans

Colvin has experience playing OLB in 4-3 so it is not out of the question that he could do some work there, but given his recent injury history having him as a situational pass rusher is his most likely role.

Excellent move as a Defensive End at this stage of his career and he would be good if he had to drop back in coverage from the defensive Line position.

we have never been in cap trouble, dale. ever. we haven't used our franchise tag ever because we have never had to. i am not huge on this signing and I do think he would be signed as an OLB not a DE. He may be a situational DE pass rusher and get down in linemena position, but I dont think it will be that often.

people always think that signing players is going to put us in cap hell or somehow is going to screw our future. this is not the case. the only time you can put yourself in cap hell is when you sign/resign scrubs like Carr, Wade, and Weaver to huge money deals and they dont perform. Why not spend the extra money and get someone who can actually play and not some big puss like Carr or scrubs like Wade or Weaver.

I would rather them go after J.Taylor but I doubt therer is any chance of that happening..he dont want to come here.

Default Re: Rosevelt Colvin to visit Texans

A couple other DEs I belive could become available over the summer are Arizona's Bertrand Berry and Jacksonville's Reggie Hayward. I say that because both teams made big investments in the draft at the DE position, as well as their respective salaries. I don't think either would come on the market until the draft choices are signed, and both teams may be looking for draft choices as compensation (rather than outright release).

Berry and Hayward make sense for the Texans because they have shown edge rushing ability, and they're former Broncos. Berry was one of Rick Smith's street free agent reclamation projects at Denver. Here's a look at the sack totals for each player, and Colvin, over their past 3 seasons.

Berry - 14.5 sacks in 27 games
Colvin - 19.5 sacks in 43 games
Hayward - 12 sacks in 28 games

The Texans need to go ahead and clear him off the books........If I were them, I'd go ahead and cut him and find a replacement (and finding somebody to replace his production shouldn't be that hard, the guy isn't producing much).
