According to Jason La Canfora, interest in free-agent DE Justin Houston is heating up, with at least four teams reaching out to the veteran in recent days.

La Canfora adds Houston has turned down some recent offers and plans to play in 2021 for the right team at the right time. 

Earlier this offseason, Houston had a visit with the Ravens, who would still make sense as a landing spot for the top pass rusher available on the market right now. 

Training camps leaguewide are scheduled to open at the end of this month so we could see Houston land with a team soon. 

Houston, 32, is a former third-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2011. He was entering the fifth year of his six-year, $101 million contract that included $52.5 million guaranteed when the Chiefs released him. 

The Colts later signed Houston to a two-year, $24 million contract in 2019. He’s once again testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent this offseason. 

In 2020, Houston appeared in all 16 games for the Colts and recorded 25 tackles, eight sacks, a forced fumble, and two recoveries.

We have him included in our Top 100 Available 2021 Free Agents list.
