Colts land big-name free agent in pass rusher Justin Houston

INDIANAPOLIS — The Colts finally made the big splash everybody expected in free agency.

Indianapolis has signed former Chiefs pass rusher Justin Houston, a league source confirmed to IndyStar. ESPN and the NFL Network originally reported the news. The Colts add the premier edge rusher a week after Houston was released by Kansas City due to his contract.

ESPN reported that Houston signed for two years and $24 million.

Houston, 30, has 78.5 sacks in nine years, and he had nine sacks for the Chiefs last season in 12 games. He was selected to the Pro Bowl four times and named a first-team all-pro in 2014.
