Kansas City Chiefs' Justin Houston was at the 2015 Pro Bowl in Arizona on Sunday night. But he didn't play. Why? Just depends on who you ask.
Tamba Hali says Houston didn't play because of his contract situation.
According to Tamba Hali Justin Houston didn't play a snap in the Pro Bowl because of his contract. "He wants to be healthy in KC."— Danny Parkins (@DannyParkins) January 26, 2015
But Houston says ...
Houston denied what Tamba said when I asked him why he didn't play in the Pro Bowl. "I had a little stomach bug." #Chiefs— Danny Parkins (@DannyParkins) January 26, 2015
Well, this is odd. If his contract is the reason Houston didn't play ... I can certainly understand that. It's potentially a multimillion dollar situation and I can't fault him for protecting that (it's actually probably the most reasonable move). I can also understand Houston not wanting folks to think he's not sitting out because of his contract. Fair enough.
If he knew he wasn't going to play, he probably should've given his spot to someone else. But maybe he is truly sick.
So ... I don't know.
