Had an 89.1 grade as a pass rusher with PFF last year.

 

Here's your splash, folks.

Imagine being a young pass rusher on the Colts having Justin Houston and Robert Mathis teaching you

hah you can see how eager the fans were for a big signing with the amount of threads started at pretty much the exact same time.

Nice signing though, some much needed pass rush help and a solid locker room presence. t'll be interesting to see how he transitions into a 4-3 end.

Imagine: 

 

 

Resigned:

CB: Pierre Desir

OG: Mark Glowinski 

SS: Clayton Geathers

DE: Marcus Hunt 

 

Signed:

WR: Devin Funchess

DE: Justin Houston 

RB: Jay Ajayi 

OLB: Aaron Lynch

 

I would consider that a big success. Super stoked!

Nice signing though, at the very least a good presence in the locker room. It'll be interesting to see how he transitions 

 

Can I vow I was here first? :thmup:

I've liked most of Ballard's signings in the past, but this one seems a bit pricey. 

 

I don't know.  I haven't watched KC that much to tell how much Houston has left in the tank.  At that price, I hope we won't be thinking Trent Cole by mid season.

Tight lipped organization. All around. Keep a close inner circle. 

 

Great signing. We get a big time veteran presence that immediately boosts our pass rush and will only help the younger cats get better...

9 sacks, 5 FF last year.

I think it depends upon the amount of guaranteed money.  

 

The issue with Houston I believe is injuries.

A 3 year deal was reported at first but it’s confirmed, its a 2 year deal $24 million. This is a huge pickup if this dude can stay healthy.

KC has one of the best pass rushes last year and Houston was a huge part of that. He was graded the 14th best rusher by PFF last year

12m is a bargain for what edge rushers go for these days tnh. I think this is probably right in line with his value if he can manage 8-12 sacks

Wow I am stunned. This might by us a time. That contract is a steal.

No clue either. Nothing about a visit either. That basically takes Lynch off the table now
