If Ndamukong Suh is worth $114 million to Dolphins, what is Justin Houston worth to Chiefs?

Ndamukong Suh just became a very, very rich man with his 6-year, $114 million deal with the Miami Dolphins. Justin Houston will eventually be a very, very rich man as well.

Suh's deal with the Dolphins is set to be completed on Tuesday, March 10, according to ESPN. That's an average of $18 million per year. Houston has been franchise tagged so the Chiefs can control his rights in 2015. At some point though, Houston is going to need to get paid. And get paid like Suh.

Houston is 26 years old coming off one of the greatest statistical seasons a pass rusher has ever had. That sounds to me like someone who could legitimately ask to be the NFL's highest paid defensive player. He may not get it but that case can and should be made his agent.

So if Suh is worth that much, how much is Justin Houston worth?
