Sources: In the wake of last nightís loss, the #Texans are releasing veteran CB Aaron Colvin, just over a year into a 4-year, $34M contract. He gets his $7.5M for 2019, which was guaranteed.

Every move this guy makes is dumb as fuck.

Itís not really anything to be excited about. But the guy was actually a decent CB at one time and itís a position they can throw numbers at. Patrick Peterson isnít coming to KC and trading for Xavien Howard would be fiscally irresponsible.

It's weird to think that 2 years ago Colvin was basically a starter on that elite Jags defense.

John Elway is shocked to read the thread title, and is bringing Garrett Bolles in to be confirm that he's reading it right. Garret isn't sure.

Look at what happened to HB in Houston. OíBrien is terrible.

Also, OíBrian is terribad.
And Colvin got scapegoated a bit here.

He was a big-money guy who underperformed last year and then was the most obvious face of a last second meltdown in the defensive backfield after his supposedly brilliant head coach and staff had the entire secondary giving 15 yards of cushion when there was only time/need for 10 yards of play anyway.

And again - guy might suck. If so, move on. But there's not much harm in Spags putting eyes on him and saying "is this guy better than Fenton".

Fucking Ward isn't even the bar to clear. A scrub 6th round pick who only made the team after a UDFA melted down in week 4 of the pre-season is your bar.

Sure - bring him in for a look.

And he hasn't been hurt, nor is he too old to play the position.

So when he goes from a big time contributor on an elite level defense to a guy who can't find his ass with a flashlight and a map, does that say he cratered despite still being in his mid-20s with no major injuries? Or does it say the scheme just wasn't right for him?

You gotta lean towards the latter, right?

Or maybe he played between 2 elite outside CB's and isn't really that good?

shrug. Sure. Sign him. At worst he's veteran depth.

If that were the case, NFL teams would have keyed on him and repeatedly exposed him.

Not if he only had to cover the 3rd or 4th best WRs on most teams.

There would be more than a few teams that would intentionally line up their best WRs in the slot to take advantage. That didnít happen. NFL teams exploit these things, even the bad teams.

Sure, but playing along side those two would make a guy look a lot better than he is.

It's something Andy Reid actually excels at...
