Justin Houston, Chiefs agree to 6-year/$101M deal


Justin Houston has become the highest paid player in Kansas City Chief history, after signing a six-year deal worth $101 million ($52.5M guaranteed). After a lengthy journey of tagging Houston for the longer haul, the two parties agreed on the terms, which makes Houston the highest paid defensive player since Ndamukong Suh’s $114 million from the Dolphins.


In his 2014-15 campaign, Houston compiled one of his best seasonal performances, proceeding former Chiefs Derrick Thomas’ 22 sacks, while coming off short in breaking Michael Strahan’s 2001 single-season number of sacks by one-half.

Drafted in the third round by Kansas City, following a failed drug test at the combine, Houston received $3 million over the course of his rookie contract.

During those years, Houston disembarked on 200 tackles, 48.5 sacks and five fumble recoveries.
