The Colts haven't had a pass-rusher have a premier season since 2013, when Robert Mathis had his last great rush season with 19.5 sacks. Houston had an impact year at 29 last fall for Kansas City (14 games, 11 sacks, including playoffs), which is why the Colts outbid others for his services on the free market in March. If the Colts get 12 effective games out of him—and if two or three or those are in the postseason—the investment will be worth it. You can tell I'm buying Houston being able to have one more strong year for a good team.
