Texans offered Mathieu long-term deal worth over $9.5M per year

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.

The safety formerly known as "The Honey Badger" is getting a 3-year deal from the Kansas City Chiefs that is said to be worth $42 million.

Mathieu can't officially sign until the league year begins on Wednesday, but he can negotiate with teams.

The safety market exploded after strong safety Landon Collins signed with the Washington Redskins for a 6-year deal for $84 million with $45 million guaranteed.

Watching the Kansas City Chiefs offense in the 2018 season was a thing of beauty.

After losing two defensive backs to free agency, the Houston Texans made a move to offset those losses with the addition of a safety who played for a division rival last season.

Mathieu has appeared in 82 games (73 starts) and tallied 394 tackles, 49 passes defensed, 13 interceptions and seven sacks.

A third-round pick out of LSU by the Arizona Cardinals in 2013, Mathieu was a first-team All-Pro selection and Pro Bowl participant in 2015.
