Ian Rapoport@RapSheet 6m6 minutes ago Progress continues between the #Chiefs & star Justin Houston. A deal would put him in JJ Watt territory: 6 years, $100M, $50M+ in guarantees




Oh hell yeah! More cap hell for other teams is always a good thing!

Chiefs LB Justin Houston's new 6-year, $101 million deal also is second richest deal in NFL history behind only Ndamukong Suh's.

More Justin Houston numbers for his 6 year, $101M deal: His signing bonus was $20.5M. $32.5M is fully guaranteed, $52.5M in guarantees.

Joel Corry@corryjoel 4m4 minutes ago Lesson to be remembered from Justin Houston situation: It costs more to sign a star the longer a team waits provided player stays healthy.




BB knows this.

That would be a dumb career move.

I doubt he puts those numbers up anywhere else.

IDK. I can think of many teams who may be willing to pony up some cash and many QBs who would take advantage of his speed. The Cowboys, Steelers, Ravens, Cincy, Oakland, Saints, Giants off the top of my head.

Justin Hunter stabbing people and Cordarrelle Patterson couldn't walk and chew gum at the same time but Da'rick Rogers was the one who went undrafted. Watch out for Rogers this year.

Missed this post earlier, but when you have a history of diabetes in your family, Houston might not be the best landing spot for you!

I think this is probably Big Vince's last hurrah and I fear it ending badly. All the Best to him. Love the guy.

A shame that Vince has no shot at the HOF. The voters are clearly biased against defensive players and those who get in generally carry a boatload of Ints or Sacks. Among tackles whose careers have ended in the last 35 years only 5 have been voted in. Vince has 16 Career sacks. Among those admitted Cortez Kennedy with 58 has far and away the fewest. Joe Green, Alan Page, Randy White and John Randall each has over 100. I think Vince deserves HOF consideration but he’ll get little or none.
But he’ll be in our Hall. And giant among those honored there.


Cheers, BostonTim

Justin Hunter faces one charge of felonious assault following a July 3 incident in Virginia Beach, Va.
Hunter turned himself into authorities on Monday after a warrant was issued for his arrest. He'll be arraigned on Tuesday. The July 3 incident took place at the Sandbar Raw Bar. Hunter has been jailed in the city jail on no bond. Already on the hot seat with the Titans, this could be Hunter's final straw. Jul 20 - 5:50 PM

Looks like the NFLPA is seriously winning this Adrian Peterson case as Judge Mayeron orders the NFL to settle it before Aug. 6th or face an all day and all night session with the judge.

"All participants should plan on spending the entire day and evening, if necessary, at this settlement conference," Judge Mayeron wrote.
