Default Justin Houston got paid!

With about 4 hours until the deadline to sign franchised players to long term deals, the Chiefs have agreed a new 6 year contract with LB Justin Houston worth $101m with $52.5m guaranteed...

going by this tweet from La Canfora its even nicer (given the bump upfront)

Huge $ for Justin Houston: $21.5M in 2015, $43m by March 2016. $52.5M total by March 2017. $32.5M full guar. $52.5m guar for injury. Wow

it going to be a pain to pay top edge rushers from now on and i wonder where the dust settles with JPP (although that deal would be until next off season.)

wonder how many NFL GM have just started crying at the size of the contract,dont watch many chiefs game so is this Houston coming of his rookie deal that was capped??Is Houston more a pass rushing LB or is he an all rounder who can cover.

maybe this could become the tag beaters thread as it seems Dez is getting a 5 year $70m deal.

Haven't seen him much, but 48.5 sacks in four seasons (22 in 2014) suggest pass rushing is his forte...

From what I hear, he's pretty solid against the run and in coverage as well, but it's his ability to consistently get to the QB that's earned him the big bucks...

Cowboys were always going to blink first. They had a big 2014 season and a lot's expected of them this year, no way they could afford to be without Bryant...
