    Colvin signed a contract with the Redskins on Friday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

    Impact

    The Redskins need reinforcements in the secondary with Quinton Dunbar (knee) deemed questionable and Fabian Moreau (ankle) listed as doubtful for Sunday's game versus the Cowboys. Colvin brings plenty of experience to the table, as he was a strong slot corner for the Jaguars in 2017. However, he struggled with the Texans last season and was a liability in coverage for them Week 1 versus the Saints, leading to his release from the team. It's unclear what role Colvin will have on the Redskins' defense, but with so many injuries he may be immediately plugged into a starting role.

    The Texans released Colvin on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Impact

    After an excellent season as the slot corner in a dominant Jaguars defense in 2017, Colvin landed a four-year, $34 million contract last March from the Texans, who were counting on him to be a linchpin in their secondary. He turned in a disappointing first season in Houston, struggling with injuries while contributing only one pass breakup in 10 games before he was a healthy inactive for the postseason loss to Indianapolis. Colvin didn't show much improved form in the Week 1 loss to the Saints, as his poor coverage contributed to two of New Orleans' second-half touchdowns. The poor effort was enough to convince the Texans to pull the plug on the 27-year-old, who will still take home $7.5 million in guaranteed money as he heads to the free-agent market. His departure likely paves the way for rookie second-round pick Lonnie Johnson to assume a more prominent role at cornerback.
