The Chiefs have signed linebacker Justin Houston to a six-year, $101 million deal that includes $52.5 million guaranteed, sources told Adam Schefter of ESPN Wednesday.

The deal is the richest in Chiefs history and the richest linebacker contract in NFL history.

It also makes Houston the second-highest-paid defensive player in the NFL, in terms of guaranteed money. Miami Dolphins tackle Ndamukong Suh ranks first after signing a six-year, $114 million contract that includes $59.95 million guaranteed earlier this offseason.

Houston and the Chiefs had until 4 p.m. ET Wednesday to agree to terms on a multiyear contract. Otherwise, they would have been prohibited by NFL rules from agreeing to a long-term deal until after the 2015 season was finished.
