Colvin is a very good player. He's likely worth $5.5M/year when healthy. But he hasn't been healthy. And while GMs may not sit around saying "Colvin is made of glass", it will hurt his market value. The Patriots should negotiate an extension with Colvin that costs substantially less than the $5.5M/yr he scheduled to earn in 2008. If he doesn't, we should look for a new LB in free agency and (provided our depth at LB permits it) cut him on the eve of the 2008 season.
