Justin Houston cracks Top 100 list


Kansas City Chiefs outside linebacker Justin Houston made NFL Network’s Top 100 Players of 2016 list.

The Chiefs are cleaning up the honors this offseason. After watching Eric Berry receive NFL Comeback Player of the Year and Marcus Peters earn NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, Kansas City made more waves in NFL Network’s Top 100 Players of 2016.

In fact, the Chiefs made the biggest splash of any team, having a league-high nine players named to the list with Travis Kelce, Alex Smith, Jeremy Maclin, Derrick Johnson, Tamba Hali, Jamaal Charles, Peters and Berry already making their appearances.

On Wednesday, the ninth and final Chiefs player was revealed at No. 26, with Justin Houston making the grade. Houston only played in 11 games last year after injuring his ACL and racked up 7.5 sacks, yet was so good that he still made it to the 26th spot.

If you want to see the video cooked up at NFL.com, here you go.

Houston will not be practicing for most if not all of training camp as he continues to recover from ACL surgery back in February. If the Chiefs want to make their championship chase, they are going to need their superstar at some point.

Let’s hope it is sooner rather than later.
