The Indianapolis Colts are interested in keeping Justin Houston from hitting free agency
Justin Houston is primed to be one of the most coveted defensive players in free agency, but if the Indianapolis Colts have their way, other teams won’t have the chance to bid on his services.
As the new league year approaches, league sources tell FanSided the Colts have expressed interest in retaining Houston.However, should he reach free agency, I’m told there’s likely a robust market for the 32-year-old.
Houston signed a two-year contract worth $24 million with the Colts back in 2019 and continues to play at a highly productive level.Houston has played at a high level since joining the Colts after leaving the Chiefs
In his first two seasons in Indianapolis, Houston produced 69 total tackles with 19 sacks, including 11 sacks in 2019, his fourth double-digit sack campaign.
Last season, Houston produced 32 total pressures, including nine sacks and 20 hurries, while producing a 63.5 overall grade and 64.4 pass-rush mark from Pro Football Focus.
A four-time Pro Bowler and first-team All-Pro, Houston has 97.5 career sacks and would be a valuable addition to any defense looking to make a run at a Super Bowl, which the Colts could be in a position to push for in 2021.
It is easy to see why retaining Houston would be a priority for the Colts, who have the financial flexibility to do so. Indianapolis, even after acquiring Carson Wentz in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles, enter the offseason with $43.6 million in cap space, the fourth-most in the NFL.

Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas to wear red Sunday in honor of Tiger Woods
More On: tiger woods Tiger Woods’ career may not be over: ‘He can surprise you’ Here’s how Tiger Woods is doing days after his terrifying car crash Coverage of Tiger Woods’ car crash ignores reality Tiger Woods reportedly transferred to a different LA hospital after surgery
Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas are among the golfers set to don Tiger Woods’ signature Sunday red and black during the final round of the World Golf Championships (WGC) event in Florida to honor the 15-time major winner, who suffered a car accident.
Woods, considered one of the greatest golfers of his generation, was being treated at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after Tuesday’s crash left him with a fractured right leg and shattered ankle.
The 45-year-old is recovering and in “good spirits”.
An 82-time PGA Tour winner, Woods famously wears a red shirt and black trousers on Sundays.
Collin Morikawa, who leads by two shots over Brooks Koepka at the Concession Golf Club, will wear the same colour combination, along with Patrick Reed, according to Golf Channel.
Max Homa endorsed the idea but said he would be unable to participate as he did not pack the colors required.
Ten-time major champion Annika Sorenstam, who is playing her first LPGA Tour tournament in 13 years, will also wear red and black in the final round of the Gainbridge LPGA event in Orlando.Filed under justin thomas , patrick reed , rory mcilroy , tiger woods , 2/28/21
