The Texans have cut cornerback Aaron Colvin after his rough start to the 2019 season, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. They signed Phillip Gaines to a one-year deal to replace Colvin on the roster.
Colvin signed a four-year, $34 million deal, with $18 million guaranteed, during the 2018 offseason. He still has $7.5 million guaranteed for this year.
Gaines spent four years in Kansas City before playing seven games for the Bills and four for the Browns last season. He has played 52 games with 22 starts since entering the league as a third-round choice of the Chiefs in 2014.
