Reports are coming in that former Patriots linebacker Roosevelt Colvin has agreed to sign with the Houston Texans. Colvin, 30, joined the Pats in 2003 and was released after the 2008 season. He has been hampered by injuries since joining the team from the Bears, including a broken hip and a serious foot injury.
Colvin finished with 26 sacks in his five years in New England, just five more than his total from his previous two seasons with the Bears.
My Take: Colvin was one of the first high profile free agent signings in the Bill Belichick era. Coming off back to back seasons of 10+ sacks, Colvin looked like a potential monster on the outside. Unfortunately, injuries really plagued him during his tenure and he never really got to the level we thought he would. I wish him best of luck in the future but I’m happy the Patriots didn’t decide to break the bank for the guy.
