Tyrann Mathieu draws interest from Chiefs, Texans

Former Cardinals and Texans safety Tyrann Mathieu agreed to a three-year, $42 million deal with the Chiefs on Monday, according to Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer.

The request from the Cardinals to take a cut in pay after the 2017 season caused Mathieu to move on from the team that selected him in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Even though other teams were reported to be in aggressive pursuit of Mathieu, including the Texans, he chose to go with the contract the Chiefs offered. He'll add a play-making element to a defense that finished 31st overall in 2018.

Mathieu was the Chiefs' top safety target in the offseason, per a source. Mathieu, who racked up 70 tackles, three sacks and two interceptions in his lone season with Houston, gives the Chiefs an elite defender in the middle of the field - something the team lacked in the 2018 season. He played both strong safety and slot corner. If they plan to start shoring things up by signing Mathieu, they better be prepared to spend.

Linebacker Ja'Whaun Bentley didn't get into specifics, but still showed his support for his former teammate cashing in big. But the Patriots selected Wynn in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, and may expect him to start in 2019.

This move does seem a little unusual from Brett Veach given that he described the prototypical Steve Spagnuolo defender as "Big and long" at the 2019 National Football League combine. However, the Honey Badger still wants to test the market.
