My guess is opportunity. On passing downs, they have Mathis and Freeney on the edges. Where/when does he play there?

I was listening to 610 this morning (I usually don't) and Dre said Bob Sanders, Freeney and Harrison might have to start the season on the PUP. Sanders has a shoulder problem. Freeney has a foot situation and Harrison's got 2 bum knees.

Take it for what it's worth, but I will say Dre mentioned that it was breaking news he was just handed at the time.

Do you all think they should start RC next to DR?

Kalu being a sub and wearing down is were I was going with that one. I think as a sub Colvin could bring it all year long and be just as strong at the end as he is in the beginning.

I think that Colvin could be Kalu's replacement. That older veteran guy who has been successful in this league and knows what it takes to win. With Bullman switching to DE, Cochran looked pretty good last year, Weaver, and MW, it would be hard to justify keeping Kalu on the roster.

Is noone going to complain that this signing will take PT away from our DE in waiting? Sage "The Sackmaster" Rosenfels?

Seriously I love it. Great offseason.

I heard had something to do with the timing. But between lack of sleep and studying, my brain is too friend to remember what I heard.

Something like Colts wanted a decision by so and so or Colvin wanted an offer by so and so, and it didn't happen.

Or maybe it was promised playing time....

I'm useless, lol.

Hey guys what is R. Colvins true Height on 610 Sports Radio they said he was 6'5" I thought he was around 6'3"? If RC foot is healthy that will be huge for Super Mario and it will not be an issue to switch back to DE he had double digit sacks in chicago as a DE.

I still think he is going to help our defense. I hope Kubes shows early what he plans to do with this guy. As for who to cut, well I'm down with both Earl Cochran and Kalu. People need to remember that Kalu backs up Mario's side and he has been productive. Earl is showing alot of promise.

FYI, Colvin was a Linebacker for the Bears. He was a DE for Purdue.

Bullman, Cochran, or Kalu I would imagine would be under the spotlight, or maybe 2 out of the 3 go. Have to look at the numbers and the entire roster.

I'm stoked. He may be the missing piece in our front seven this year....he's good enough to play in space in some packages and can give us a player that makes teams pay for overshifting to Mario in obvious pass rushing situations when he plays hand down.

Yep, I can't wait either! I think the 1st 5 games will tell us alot about this team and where they are going. Even if they win only 2 out of the 1st 5, but play all the games close and fight to the end I think it will tell us alot. JMHO!

I agree with this. I am sure he will be used in more ways than one.

This signing really has me pumped for the season to start already. I think if we rotate him with Weaver and keep him fresh it's definitely going to help Mario and the pass rush.

Default Re: Rosevelt Colvin to sign with Texans

I want to see the numbers that it's taking to get this thing done.

I think that in passing situations he could be the OLB, and he could also be the DE. If somebody like Bulman develops into a decent enough pass rusher then why wouldn't we put Colvin at OLB in very specific situations? 3 guys that can rush the passer (4 if you count Okoye), and all from widely different areas?

I like the signing.

I find it interesting that no numbers were disclosed.
No salary info. No length of contract info. No bonus info...
Maybe all that will be divulged when the signing actually occurs.

Default Re: Rosevelt Colvin to sign with Texans

I'm really happy about this signing. I don't know how much the Texans had to pay but even if they had to overpay for him it would be well worth it. He's a guy who will help us win and he brings loads of great experience with him. What's the use of saving up money if we don't win? I think this is the year we have a chance to make some real progress and make a push for the playoffs. I don't think he needs to be the starter to be effective, but I'll let the coaches decide that. So far it's been a real good offseason for us.
