Steelers fans collectively breathed a sigh of relief when not only did JuJu Smith-Schuster decide to stay in Pittsburgh, but he declined opportunities to go to one of two NFL powerhouse teams. Shortly after news broke that Smith-Schuster was sticking around, it was revealed that he had been courted by the arch-nemesis Baltimore Ravens and conference foe, Kansas City Chiefs. Smith-Schuster spoke with Michael Irvin on “The Michael Irvin podcast” and described how the Ravens attempted to lure him.
The Colts have reportedly been interested in re-signing Houston this offseason, but at this point, it feels like that may not be until after the draft in May if it were to happen. The Colts have struggled with getting a consistent pass rush for quite some time and had seven games in 2020 with either one or zero sacks. While Houston is no longer a player who will get you consistent sack numbers, he can contribute in a smaller role.
According to CBS Sports Jason La Canfora, Indianapolis Colts free agent veteran pass rusher Justin Houston will be visiting the Baltimore Ravens and Houston Texans—while per the IndyStar’s Jim Ayello, ‘nothing new’ has developed in ongoing contract negotiations with the Colts: Houston just completed the final season of a 2-year, $24M deal he signed with Indianapolis during the 2019 offseason—having racked up 19.0 total sacks in two seasons with the Colts.
