KANSAS CITY, Mo. — One day, Justin Houston will be invited back to Arrowhead Stadium. He’ll wear a suit. Clark Hunt will be there, at midfield during halftime. He’ll present a framed jersey. The PA announcer will go on and on about one of the best defensive players in a franchise history full of good ones.

He’ll watch as his name is officially added to the Chiefs’ ring of honor.

It’ll be a nice moment, and well deserved, and when it happens the awkwardness of the moment will have been forgiven if not forgotten.
