Justin Houston Elevating Indianapolis Colts' Defense

Indianapolis Colts' EDGE rusher Justin Houston brings a veteran presence to the team's defense that they haven't had since the prime years of defensive end Robert Mathis. Houston has totaled 78.5 sacks in his career, and he's the second-most experienced player on the team's roster. His pass-rushing ability makes life easier on the back end coverage unit, while allowing other pass rushers more time to get to the quarterback. After finishing as a bottom-16 unit last season, they should be propelled into the top half of the league this season.

Colts Sign Justin Houston

The Indianapolis Colts signed free-agent outside linebacker Justin Houston to a two-year deal worth $24 million on Thursday, a source told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Houston had nine sacks for the Chiefs last year, but he was cut with the team trying to get younger and defense while transitioning from a 3-4 base defense to a 4-3 scheme. The Colts also run a 4-3, but they project to use him as a defensive end for the first time in his career. The 30-year-old has dealt with a nagging knee injury in recent years but still has 18.5 sacks in the last two years. The veteran will certainly help boost a weak Indy pass rush from a season ago.

Chiefs Release Justin Houston

The Kansas City Chiefs released veteran outside linebacker Justin Houston after eight seasons with the team. The Chiefs tried to find a trade partner for Houston's $15.25 million base salary in 2019. They'll save $14 million on the salary cap with the move, leaving $7.1 million in dead money. The 30-year-old had nine sacks and 37 tackles in 12 regular season games for KC and can still be a disruptor in the backfield when healthy. With the Chiefs also agreeing to trade Dee Ford to the 49ers this week, two of KC's best defenders are now gone. As they attempt to get younger with a new defensive coordinator, the Chiefs D should be avoided in fantasy.
