Chiefs LB Justin Houston wants you to know he's in perfect shape

BY foxsports • August 3, 2015

Justin Houston held out from his team for a new deal. He did not hold out from the gym.

The All-Pro linebacker arrived to camp in St. Joseph, Mo. with a new contract and the same old physique. He passed the team's conditioning test with flying colors.

"I didn't want to show up out of shape," Houston told the Kansas City Star. "I made sure I was working."

That fact almost makes Houston worth his ground-breaking contract by itself. Some NFL stars would pocket over $50 million in guaranteed money and coast. Not Houston.

"I wasn't sitting around not working," Houston said. "I love working out. This is what I live for."
