Justin Houston recorded a sack for the Ravens in Sunday night’s loss to the Bengals and he hopes it isn’t the last one he picks up as a member of the team.
Houston wrapped up the 12th season of his career in the 24-17 loss and the veteran pass rusher said that he plans to take some time off to rest in the immediate future. After that, he’ll return to working out with an eye on a return to the Ravens for the 2023 season.
“The way I feel right now — I’ll be back,” Houston said, via the team’s website. “We’ll see if the chips work out, and I’ll be here. That’s out of my control. We’ll see what they do. I’d like to be back here.”
Houston had 9.5 sacks for the Ravens in the regular season, which is the most he’s recorded in a single season since 2019. That production should help him find work in Baltimore or someone else as long as he continues to feel the desire to play a 13th year in the NFL.
