After finishing the 2017 season ranked 24th in the league against the pass, the Houston Texans took steps during the offseason to bolster the secondary.
Colvin, in particular, will be counted on immediately to help the Texans lock up opposing wide receivers, evidenced by his lucrative four-year, $34 million deal with $18 million guaranteed.
"No question, it's kind of past talking for me right now," Colvin said, via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. "It's something burning inside me. I can't really explain, but I'll wake everybody up this year."
On his new team, Colvin projects to continue contributing inside and outside, but the bulk of his work should be on the edges.
And he welcomes the challenges that come with the responsibility of going against some of the league's top wide receivers.
"Truthfully, I did want to play some outside," Colvin said. "It's about winning my one-on-ones. It gives myself the best chance to make a play."
