Houston ranks fourth in franchise history for Kansas City with 78.5 career sacks, and he is also a former first-team All-Pro in 2014. That was the season he won the sacks title with 22 of them, which is tied for the second-highest single-season total in NFL history.
The veteran is turning 30 years old before the 2019 season begins, but was said to be in talks with Colts general manager Chris Ballard over phone calls and text messages for a while. The two finally agreed on a two-year deal that is worth $24 million, making it a rare addition for the Colts this off-season. Ballard has spent most of his $100 million in cap room by re-signing his current players. The only other addition was wide receiver Devin Funchess. Houston now becomes the highlight of their off-season, as he looks to join Darius Leonard on the defensive side of the ball, which failed the Colts in their playoff loss to the Houston Texans.
