4. Justin Houston, EDGE
Something tells me that if the Chiefs wanted Justin Houston—and/or Justin Houston wanted the Chiefs—this would have already happened. But I can’t claim knowledge about those kinds of things, so I’m still going to include him here.
This reunion wouldn’t just be a transaction for old time’s sake. Houston can still play. While Houston isn’t the same guy he was in 2014, he has a remarkable knack for getting to the quarterback, notching 9 sacks in 2020 while starting 16 games. Houston’s pass-rushing production could strengthen the Chiefs’ unit, but this all depends on the mutual interest between Houston and the Chiefs.
5. Jurrell Casey, DT
Jurrell Casey would be a nice pickup, especially if we see Chris Jones kick out to defensive end often. The longtime TItan is still a very strong run defender, who could provide the Chiefs d-line a boost as Jones’ disruptive presence is shifted outside. He probably won’t be able to add much to the pass rush, but Casey is still one of the better run-stuffers in the game and, if he is healthy, might be worth a look for depth.
