Last season with the Lions, Houston had 56 tackles, two interceptions and two forced fumbles.
Houston has been with the Lions since the 2010 season after being signed as a free agent from the Atlanta Falcons.
Houston was drafted in the second round of the 2007 draft (41st overall) by the Atlanta Falcons out of Arkansas.
