It all started in Week 17 against the Baltimore Ravens, when star edge rusher Brady Chubb suffered a season-ending ACL injury.
Houston, 34, played seven games for the Carolina Panthers this season, racking up five solo tackles and a half.
The four-time Pro Bowler has 112 career sacks in 170 career games.
