Houston, 24, originally signed on with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Indiana back in May of 2014. Houston was , unfortunately, waived during the preseason before later signing on with the Steelers.

Houston’s time in Pittsburgh was also short lived, as he was once again placed on waivers after a few weeks with the Steelers.

During his college career at Indiana, Houston ran for 2,304 yards on 424 carries (5.4 YPC) and scored 29 total touchdowns.
