HOUSTON (AP) -Free agent linebacker Rosevelt Colvin said Monday he's set to sign with the Houston Texans.
Colvin, who won two Super Bowls with the New England Patriots, told Houston television station KRIV that final contract details were being worked out.
``Both parties feel like they fit each other,'' Colvin said. ``Hopefully, we can get everything squared away as far as dotting the i's and crossing the t's.''
Texans spokesman Zac Emmons said Colvin hasn't signed but will address the media at the team's facility Monday.
The 30-year-old was released by New England after a foot injury sidelined him for the last eight games of last season, including the playoffs.
He signed with the Patriots in 2003 after back-to-back career highs of 10 1/2 sacks with Chicago, but his first season in New England ended after just two games because of a hip injury.
Colvin bounced back to play three full regular seasons for the Patriots before last year's injury. He has 52 1/2 sacks in nine seasons.
Colvin's agent, Kennard McGuire, didn't return a phone call Monday from The Associated Press.
