Patriots Bring Back LB Rosevelt Colvin

The Pats have brought back one of their former players, as linebacker Rosevelt Colvin has rejoined the roster. He had been with the team for the past five seasons, and will help out a unit right away that is banged up with only Mike Vrabel being the only healthy player. “I didn’t necessarily have something to prove,” Colvin said today. “It wasn’t like I was scratching walls trying to get back in the game. (But) it’s definitely a benefit and a plus to have an opportunity.”

Colvin has 52.5 sacks in nine seasons, and should help with some pass rush, which has hurt the team as of late. “He’s a guy that can definitely rush the passer,” defensive end Richard Seymour said, “but we need everything right now. We need a pass rusher. We need run stoppers. So all hands on deck heading out to Seattle.”
