Like most back end loaded contracts Colvin will probably not get the 3rd year & I think focus should be on what he does & gets paid first two years. That deal is pretty sweet if he is just a solid player. Anything above that is gravy for da chikn!

Am I wrong thinking $8 million over three years is not a lot of money??

I mean I heard that Colvin was wanting a big contract, but when I read the details.... It didn't seem like a big deal to me.

I mean what's Greenwood costing us??

Morlon Greenwood will have a base salary of $4,017,000 in 2008 ($5,517,000 cap total) and $4,768,000 ($6,268,000 cap total) if he's still with the Texans in 2009.

Keith Weiland's Texans salary cap page on inthebullseye.com.

You are correct TK. I tis not a lot of $ as I posted earlier, he probably will not get 3rd year which lowers amount but the agent can tell other potential contract he got the $8m. If Colvin gets 6+ sacks and creates havoc OR allows the other linemen to do their job better, Smith made a steal.

heard about the contract and i love numbers. I respect the hell out of Rick Smith with going out and landing this guy with a low risk high reward contract. It blows my mind that he can bring a guy in like this for that cheap for his first year.

***WARNING THIS IS ONLY ONE GAME***.

That's the Pats vs the Chargers week 2 of the '07 perfect season. We signed that guy to a low risk first year contract. That sounds great to me.

Anybody got a chance to wath the Pats replay yesterday?

I don't have the pause or playback or slomo feature with my TV as I would with the PC so it's hard to tell for sure.

Colvin lookes pretty good, but not outstanding.
But I might have missed many things.
