2. Houston still putting up incredible numbers
As mentioned before, there will most likely be some teams hesitant towards signing Houston since he did just turn 30 in January, and there’s always the fear of his numbers heading towards a decline.
Luckily for Houston, the Chiefs star has made a strong case for himself when it comes to proving he can still play at a high level, and the 18.5 sacks recorded over the last two seasons are just one of many examples to support that claim.
What makes this potential trade even more exciting for a team like Los Angeles is how Houston doesn’t seem like he’s going to be slowing down any time soon, and motivated more than ever after watching Kansas City lose in the AFC Championship the way they did.
If the Chiefs were to end up hanging on to Houston, at least he would still be part of a serious contender in the AFC since Kansas City is already viewed as one of the early Super Bowl 54 favorites.
But if Houston were to end up on the Rams, the linebacker would also be joining one of the early Super Bowl 54 favorites as well, and could benefit from playing with a crew that did manage to punch their ticket to the big game instead of coming up shy in the championship round.
