Houston, 32, is a former second-round pick of the Raiders back in 2010. After four years in Oakland, the Bears signed Houston to a five-year, $35 million contract that included $15 million guaranteed.
The Bears placed Houston on injured reserve during the preseason and later released him with an injury settlement. Houston had a brief stint with the Texans before he was waived late in the 2017 season and claimed by the Bears.
After becoming a free agent, he worked out for the Raiders, Jets, Seahawks, and Vikings but left each meeting without a contract.
For his career, Houston appeared in 100 total games and recorded 302 total tackles, 58 tackles for loss, 30.5 sacks, one interception, seven pass defenses, five forced fumbles, nine fumble recoveries, and scored one defensive touchdown.
