The Chief Stays In Kansas City !

Today, the Kansas City Chiefs extended the best 3-4 outside linebacker to a mega deal. The signing gives Houston $101 mil with $52.5 mil guaranteed over the next 6 years, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Houston has out played his rookie contract.  Now, he got his money and now needs to prove he is worth it. Throughout Houston’s career he has accumulated 48.5 sacks with almost 200 tackles, per Pro-Football-Reference. Less tackles more sacks! Sacks are one of the main reasons he is getting paid. Last season Houston had his best season as a pro and led the league with 22 sacks, which is his career high and made the pro bowl 3 straight seasons. He was also named to the 1st team All-Pro, per Pro-Football-Reference.
