Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston signed a six-year, $101 million deal that includes $52.5 million guaranteed Wednesday, July 15. The deal is the richest in franchise history and the largest deal ever for a linebacker.
Huddle Up: The big money wasn't only given to offensive players today as the Chiefs locked up Houston for the foreseeable future. Now IDP owners can rest assured they'll have their sack machine available without risk of a holdout.

Free-agent LB Justin Houston (Chiefs) is moving closer to franchise tag status with the Kansas City Chiefs. There were rumors talks on a new deal had begun, but sources indicate the rumors are false and the team will likely slap the tag on Houston.
Huddle Up: Either way, the Chiefs are determined that the 2014 NFL sacks leader will remain in K.C. for at least another season. Look for contract talks to pick up soon, though, after Houston is tagged as expected.

Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent LB Justin Houston's agent is expected to talk with the Chiefs this week about a possible long-term contract for Houston, according to a source. The Chiefs are expected to place the franchise tag on Houston if the two sides are not able to reach an agreement on a new deal.
Huddle Up: Houston had a breakout year last season with 22 sacks after notching a combined 26.5 in his first three seasons and look for him to remain in K.C. one way or the other.

Kansas City Chiefs OLB Justin Houston is likely to receive the franchise tag before free agency gets underway next month.
Huddle Up: The 26-year-old Houston, who led the league with 22 sacks to double his previous season high, would be one of the hottest FA commodities if he was allowed to hit the market, but that's not going to happen with the playmaker-needy Chiefs.
