AP Source: Chiefs place franchise tag on All-Pro Houston

(AP) -- The Kansas City Chiefs have placed the franchise tag on All-Pro pass rusher Justin Houston, a person familiar with the decision tells The Associated Press.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because the Chiefs have not announced the move. It was widely expected given the relatively little progress that Kansas City has made with Houston and his representatives on a long-term deal.

The two sides still have until July 15 to negotiate a contract, and it is not certain whether Houston will immediately sign his tender. As an outside linebacker, the one-year deal would earn him about $13.1 million for the upcoming season.
