Alternately, Colaiacovo stays healthy, plays really well, and goes out and gets a big payday in free agency, kind of the same way that Tom Poti did a few years ago.
If it was only a 1year deal like you said, it wouldn't be such a bad pickup. If you dig through all the injury reports he's got some underrated scoring ability. You just have to remember that this will more than likely happen at some point during the year....
