However, Lombardo adds that Houston figures to have a “robust” market this offseason should he actually reach the open market.
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 in position to be an unrestricted free agent again 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.
