One of the headlines of the 2018 free agent haul is off the team after one game in 2019

Texans release Aaron Colvin


The Texans have moved on from 2018 free agent signing Aaron Colvin.

Colvin was a standout in Jacksonville in 2017 and one of the first moves of the Brian Gaine era with the Texans. In March of 2018 he signed a 4-year $34 million contract with $18 million guaranteed.

He played in just 10 games in 2018 as his season was marred by injury. Monday against the Saints Drew Brees picked on the slot corner completing eight of nine passes on Colvin for 117 yards and a touchdown. The one that wasn't a completion was a drop.

The Texans will eat $7.5 million according to Spotrac. They have reportedly signed cornerback Philip Gaines to the roster.

There is an argument to be made if his security on the team was this fickle he shouldn't have made the team in the first place. The Texans have the money to take the hit so no problems there but couldn't the reps have been used on someone else?

Bill O'Brien is clearly not messing around in 2019.
