Houston signed a six-year, $101 million deal Wednesday that includes $52.5 million guaranteed, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Houston skipped the Chiefs' early offseason workouts as he searched for a long-term deal with the club. The resulting contract is the largest for a linebacker in NFL history. If any linebacker's earned the contract, Houston is it. He followed up an 11-sack 2013 season by doubling it to 22 last season. Still early in his career, the fifth-year linebacker should provide the Chiefs with a strong pass-rushing presence for years to come.

Houston probably won't attend the Chiefs' mandatory three-day minicamp next week, according to coach Andy Reid, The Kansas City Star reports.

Houston, who led the NFL with 22 sacks last season, remains in search of a long-term contract from the Chiefs; however, with no such deal in place, Houston has been absent from Kansas City's team activities this offseason. That time away figures to continue next week, when Houston is not anticipated to attend minicamp. At the moment, Houston's reluctance toward moving forward under the Chiefs' franchise tag has been abundantly clear, so unless a long-term extension is struck before the July 15 deadline, the highly productive Houston figures to continue his stance.

Houtson will receive the Chiefs' franchise tag for the 2015 season, Conor Orr of NFL.com reports.

Houston will earn nearly $14 million for the 2015 campaign. The outside linebacker/defensive end recorded a league-leading 22 sacks in 2014, falling a half-sack short of Michael Strahan's single season record of 22.5. Given the potential salary Houston could earn on the open market, the Chiefs are likely keeping Houston at a fair price.

The Chiefs are slated to meet with Houston's agent at the NFL combine this coming week, Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports.Paylor further suggests that the Chiefs aren't expected to use their franchise tag on Houston before they meet with Houston's representative, but either way, retaining the NFL's 2014 sack leader is a priority for the team. Houston finished up this past season with 69 tackles, 22 sacks and four forced fumbles in 16 games.
