Justin Houston is not expected to be among those Kansas City Chiefs players hitting the field for OTAs, which start today. I have reminded you of this a few times this summer but this is another good reminder from Joel Corry of CBS Sports:
Chiefs shouldn't be concerned about Justin Houston missing offseason. Whatever he did last offseason as a no show worked (22 sacks in '14).— Joel Corry (@corryjoel) May 26, 2015
Houston skipped the offseason program last year, too. He came into training camp later that year in great shape and put together one of the best statistical seasons for a pass rusher in NFL history. There are very few football reasons to be concerned about Houston. By all accounts, he's staying in shape this year (just like last year) and will come back as good as ever.
The next important date to be concerned with when it comes to Houston is July 15. That's the deadline for him and the Chiefs to agree to a long-term contract. If they don't strike a deal by then, Houston will be forced to play out the year under the one-year franchise tag. Then we'll do this all over again next year.
