The Washington Redskins signed Aaron Colvin on Friday, one day after the cornerback was released officially by the Houston Texans. Colvin was cut a few days after he struggled in the Texans' 30-28 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Monday. He allowed a 41-yard completion on third-and-2 with 2:05 remaining in the game and was playing off-coverage on the 9-yard gain the Saints used to set up kicker Wil Lutz's 58-yard game-winning field goal as time expired.

Houston signed Colvin to a four-year, $34 million contract in March 2018. Colvin, 27, will join a defensive backfield that features Josh Norman, Quinton Dunbar and Fabian Moreau, although the latter two are nursing injuries. Dunbar is questionable to play in Sunday's game against Dallas with an ailing knee while Moreau is doubtful with an ankle injury.

He finishes his Texans tenure with 34 tackles and one pass breakup in 11 games (three starts). A fourth-round pick of the Jaguars in 2014, he had 166 tackles and 14 pass breakups in 48 games (25 starts) across four seasons in Jacksonville.
