Kansas City Chiefs: Grading the Tyrann Mathieu signing in free agency

13 March, 2019, 05:56 | Author: Marlene Myers

A Pro Bowler and first-team All-Pro selection in 2015, Mathieu signed a one-year deal with the Houston Texans last season and racked up 89 tackles, eight pass deflections, three sacks and two interceptions.

Thomas, who has been seeking a trade or extension from Seattle over the previous year, is one of the last marquee free agents safeties available although he's been reported to be seeking the most money. Mathieu earned notoriety during college at LSU for his ability to create turnovers, earning the nickname "Honey Badger".

The contract will not become official until the beginning of the new league year at 3 p.m. Collins will make $45 million guaranteed.

Tyrann Mathieu and Earl Thomas were looking to get paid, and Kansas City seemed poised to pounce on the second-tier of safeties that included names like Adrian Amos, Lamarcus Joiner, and the newly released Johnathan Cyprien. That wasn't enough to convince the safety not to field offers from other teams such as the Detroit Lions and Kansas City Chiefs, per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

Mathieu, 26, was a third-round pick of the Arizona Cardinals in 2013.

He signed a $7 million deal with Houston last season and wound up starting all 16 games.
