With a large payday potentially on the horizon, Chiefs' Justin Houston keeps his focus narrow

By Marc Sessler

Excerpt from The Kansas City Star

"ST. JOSEPH - In the last few months, as speculation about his unhappiness with his contract status swirled, Chiefs outside linebacker Justin Houston was largely quiet, save for the occasional tweet.

NFL Nation: 4 Downs – AFC West

By ESPN.com staff

Excerpt from ESPN.com

"The Kansas City Chiefs won the division in '10. Broncos owner Pat Bowlen fired McDaniels after a 4-12 season marred by Spygate and hired John Elway as the Broncos' top football executive.

And the Broncos' crushing February Super Bowl loss notwithstanding, they are coming off a record-setting 2013 with Manning returning and a free-agency haul that included pass-rusher DeMarcus Ware, cornerback Aqib Talib, safety T.J. Ward and receiver Emmanuel Sanders. The Broncos are poised to be in the league's championship conversation again..." READ MORE…
