KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Chiefs kicked off the third phase of the offseason workout program Tuesday with the first set of voluntary organized team activities missing nine players.
The biggest name absent from the practice field didn't come as a surprise.
All-Pro outside linebacker Justin Houston, who has yet to sign a non-exclusive franchise tender, was not present as he seeks a long-term contract. The 26-year-old Houston also did not report April 20 for the start of the offseason workout program, following the same path he took in 2014 while entering the final year of his contract.
