Which is still good...but not someone irreplaceable.

$20 million buys you 2-3 very good to great FA players....if the Chiefs can move him, they should. IMO. In Dorsey's defense...nobody saw Parker inadvertently ruining his chance to be one of the greats.

Think of trading (dumping) Houston for Tyrann Mathieu/Sherman/ Talib AND Muhammad Wilkerson? Would you do it? That is strictly from a financial angle...Shit, a Sherman/Mathieu/Berry/Fuller/Peters back end would be amazing...
Well to start: you're not going to get any combination of Mathieu, Sherman, Talib and Wilkerson for $20m AAV. Even if you did, who's going to rush the passer?

We can't even entertain the thought of cutting Houston until next offseason. More realistically, unless he actually has a bad season, he'll be here until 2020.
