 Draft Scout *Justin Houston News
06/17/15 - OLB Justin Houston walked out of the Kansas City Chiefs facility on Dec. 29, the day after the 2014 season came to an end. His shadow has not crossed the team's threshold since. As expected going into the club's three-day mandatory minicamp this week, Houston was a no-show. It's the second season in a row he boycotted the Chiefs' offseason program -- OTAs and minicamp. Last year, it cost him close to $70,000 in fines because he was under contract. This year, there are no fines for Houston because he remains unsigned. Designated as the team's franchise player, he has not signed the $13.195 million tender offer that's been sitting there since early March. Since he's not under contract, he does not have to show up. "A couple days ago, I asked him if he was coming (to minicamp)," fellow outside linebacker Tamba Hali said. "He didn't reply. ... He's doing well, working out, getting himself in shape, preparing to be here." Negotiations between the Chiefs and Houston have gone on for 18 months and it appears little progress has been made at bridging a gap that last year appeared to be Grand Canyon-like. Houston wants to be rewarded for his 22-sack season in 2014, when he led the league and established a franchise record for sacks in a season. He is looking for J.J. Watt-type money. The Houston Texans defensive end signed a six-year contract extension in September of 2014 for $100 million, with more than half of that total guaranteed. Houston and Watt came into the league through the 2011 draft, as the Texans grabbed Watt with pick No. 11 and the Chiefs picked up Houston at No. 70, in the third round. Both are entering a fifth season and are 26 years old. On the field, Houston in 59 games has 48.5 sacks, 234 total tackles and three Pro Bowl berths. Watt has played 64 games with 57 sacks, 295 total tackles and three Pro Bowls. In the interest of full disclosure, Watt also caught three passes, all for touchdowns while playi
03/04/15 - OLB Justin Houston was tagged with the franchise player designation. Whether through that $13.195 tender offer or a long-term contract, Houston will be on the field in 2015. The Chiefs can't afford to lose their most talented defensive player, especially one who will be just 26.
03/02/15 - LB Justin Houston received the franchise tag from the Chiefs Monday. Houston will reportedly challenge the designation over his classification as a defensive end or outside linebacker. Defensive ends have a franchise one-year tender of $14.813 million, second only to quarterbacks. The tender for linebackers is $13.195. Baltimore Ravens pass rusher Terrell Suggs filed a similar grievance but the two sides negotiated a middle ground before it reached arbitration. New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham filed a grievance last year, hoping to be recognized as a wide receiver because he spent more than 50 percent of the team's snaps in the slot. Graham was confirmed as a tight end but then agreed to a long-term contract. The deadline for a long-term extension to be signed is July 15. Houston can choose not to sign the tender until this summer. In his fourth season, Houston led the NFL in sacks with 22 in 2014. He finished one-half sack shy of Michael Strahan's league record. For his four-year career, Houston has registered 48.5 sacks. The 26-year-old Houston had at least one sack in 13 of Kansas City's 16 games. His near-historic season earned him an invitation to a third straight Pro Bowl.
12/22/14 - OLB Justin Houston picked up sack No. 18 on the season against Pittsburgh and he again holds the NFL lead for quarterback sacks, sitting a half-sack ahead of J.J. Watt of the Texans. Houston's performance is the second best pass rushing performance in franchise history and he's two sacks from matching the record of 20 sacks set in 1990 by Hall of Fame linebacker Derrick Thomas.
12/08/14 - OLB Justin Houston continues to maintain his NFL lead in sacks. He picked up two more against Arizona and has 16. That's the second-best sack year in franchise history, topped only by Derrick Thomas' 20 sacks in 1990. The NFL record is 22.5 sacks, by former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan in 2001.
