Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston is the winner of the Deacon Jones Award, given annually to the NFL leader in quarterback sacks.

Houston, a Pro Bowl selection at outside linebacker, led the league with 22 sacks, tied for the second-most in a single season since the statistic was officially instituted in 1982, trailing only the 22.5 sacks posted by Pro Football Hall of Famer Michael Strahan in 2001.

“I’m very honored and humbled to earn this award named after one of the greatest defensive players and sack masters of all time,” said Houston, whose accomplishments will be recognized as part of NFL Honors, the NFL’s primetime awards show on NBC at 9 p.m. Eastern on Saturday night, January 31. “I’d like to thank my teammates, coaches and our fan base. They rallied behind us all season long and helped fuel our pass rush. To have my name mentioned in the same sentence as a player like Deacon Jones is truly a blessing.”

The Deacon Jones Award was created in 2013 to permanently honor the legacy of Deacon Jones. Jones died on June 3, 2013 at the age of 74.

One of the greatest defensive players in NFL history, Jones was a fixture at defensive end from 1961-74 with the Los Angeles Rams, San Diego Chargers and Washington Redskins, earning unanimous all-league honors in five consecutive seasons. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1980.
