NFL teams are cornering the market with bigger defensive backs

When he was the Chiefs’ head coach, Marty Schottenheimer was fond of saying a team can never have enough good cornerbacks. Nowadays, an NFL team can’t have enough big cornerbacks. The Seattle Seahawks established the template, and won the Super Bowl by deploying tall cornerbacks like 6-foot-3 Richard Sherman.

Justin Houston expected to report for start of Chiefs camp, even without new contract

Chiefs outside linebacker Justin Houston, who skipped the Chiefs’ offseason training activities, is expected to report for the start of training camp, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed to The Star on Wednesday. The source said Houston, 25, who will make $1.4 million this season on the final year of his four-year rookie contract, will likely report even if he isn’t given a contract extension before camp starts, though Houston wouldn’t be thrilled.
