Kansas City Chiefs Releasing LB Justin Houston

The Chiefs defense will look a lot different in 2019, as the team is releasing veteran linebacker Justin Houston.

Last season Houston had a productive season, putting up nine sacks and forced five fumbles in 12 games, but overall is not the same player he was.

Houston is scheduled to make $15.25 million in base salary this season. A pre-June 1 cut would result in a $7.1 million cap charge.

Houston, 30, was a third-round pick of the Chiefs in 2011. He has 78.5 career sacks and 14 forced fumbles, earning four Pro Bowl berths and one All-Pro honor.

He has not made the Pro Bowl since 2015 and hasn’t had double-digit sacks since a league-best 22 in 2014.
