Justin Houston is hoping a team is willing to sign him to an offer sheet

justin houstonWhen is the last time a player coming off a season with 22 sacks was available in free agency?  It has been a while, but Justin Houston is not happy with his Franchise tag.  A matter of fact, Pro Football Talk is reporting that Houston is hoping a team signs him to an offer sheet.

Per multiple sources, Houston is very upset with the Chiefs.  It’s believed that he’ll actively solicit an offer sheet in the hopes the Chiefs won’t match it.

If an offer sheet doesn’t happen before the 2015 draft, something could happen after the draft, because at that point a team signing him would give up first-round picks in 2016 and 2017.  For a coach or G.M. who may be fired at the end of the season, giving up draft picks they may not be there to use is a small price to pay.

This makes sense, considering there are some teams that are trying to make a run.  What is a first round pick to a team that is almost over the hump or already a contender?
