KC's Justin Houston signed a 6-year, $101M deal that includes $52.5M GTD, richest Chiefs' deal in history, richest LB deal in NFL history.

No, this news doesn’t have anything to do with Demaryius Thomas (who has not come to terms on a new contract as of this post), but Houston’s deal could definitely have implications for any new contract that Von Miller is seeking.
Of course, the contract details are what matter (full guarantees, injury guarantees, etc.), but if Houston is worth $101M over six years, what do you think Miller and his agent will likely want?
ETA: Had to include Lindsay Jones’ tweet just because she’s right.
You know who likes Justin Houston's deal? VON MILLER.
