Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Chiefs reworked OLB Justin Houston’s contract in recent days and in turn picked up $6 million of cap space.

The Chiefs now have around $11 million in cap space. Specifically, the NFLPA report has them at $11,170,610. This is plenty of room for the rest of the season.
