The Kansas City Chiefs are confirming the Justin Houston contract. While they didn't give specifics of the deal, it's been reported it's a six-year, $101 million deal with $52.5 million guaranteed.

Here's what Chiefs GM John Dorsey and head coach Andy Reid had to say.

Chiefs GM John Dorsey

"Today we were able to reach an agreement with Justin and his agent, Joel Segal, to keep him here in Kansas City for the foreseeable future. He's one of the top players in the National Football League and a premier pass rusher. As we've said from the beginning, Justin the football player, and the person, is someone we wanted to be a part of our organization. We are very happy that he will remain a member of the Chiefs."

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid

"John, Joel and their staffs did a great job of getting this deal done. Justin has a relentless work ethic on the field and in the classroom, and he provides our team with tremendous leadership. He is a fearless competitor, and we are glad he is going to be back."
