First off, let me say Im sorry for posting this if there is already another post concerning the matter. Secondly, I do realize I have asked about this on one or two occasions on different posts. I start this FanPost because I am starting to get concerned with 1)Why Houston hasnt signed yet and is not in camp and 2)Why there is no word about him from the organization.
I know when we drafted him he was a "risk" with his attitude and character, and we will be burnt or rewarded depending on what happens, but I am highly concerned. A lot of people have the mindset of "well, he was a risk we were willing to take so you cant be upset." But me, on the other hand, I am upset. This was possibly my favorite pick in the draft because I thought he would help our defense, as well as our pass rush somewhat sooner than later. It was also my favorite because at one time he was a projected first rounder who slipped into the third. When we picked him, I thought we had a steal.
Along with him not signing or being in camp, I believe he wasnt at the player only workouts either. Therefore, the last time I heard his name associated with the Chiefs it was on Draft Day. So, I havent heard anything about him all summer, through signings, through camps...Where in the world is he?
I am starting to get concerned (along with a few fans on here and some of my other diehard Chiefs fans buddies). Has he had a Sergio Kindle type of accident? Surely we would have heard something about it. Has he just pulled a Ricky Williams and decided to quit playing football so he could just smoke it up anytime he wants to? I hope not. Is he "holding out" because he wants more money because at one time he was a higher pick? Sorry, the new CBA doesnt give you much wiggle room, Justin. This is just a few of the many crazy reasons I have thought about while nose-diving into Chiefs training camp and getting my fill.
So I guess my questions to my friends of AP is: "1st: Have you heard anything regarding Houston? (from Josh Looney, Nick Wright, Bob Fescoe, Chiefs Org., etc) and 2nd: What are your thoughts on it and how are you reacting?"
