With one potential holdout out of the way, Kansas City Chiefs fans now focus their attention on the other possible holdout -- LB Justin Houston.
I watched as the Chiefs veterans reported to camp on Wednesday and saw no sign of Justin Houston. We asked Tamba Hali if Houston was going to be here and he said that he heard he was. It's also been reported by a number of outlets that Houston is indeed expected in camp.
I haven't seen him with my own two eyes to prove it but the KC Star's Terez Paylor says he's in St. Joe.
We didn’t see Houston report, but a source just told me Houston "is in" camp. Nothing to worry about, folks. #Chiefs— Terez A. Paylor (@TerezPaylor) July 23, 2014
The Chiefs take the practice field at 3:30 p.m. this afternoon, at which point we're expecting to see Houston on the field for the first time since the Chiefs playoff loss to the Colts last January.
Houston's likely to report to camp at some point because he needs to accrue another season to be eligible for free agency. Not reporting to camp within 30 days of the first game would mean he'd be in this same spot next year.
