Tyrann Mathieu: 5 Potential landing spots in 2018 following release

Tyrann Mathieu: 5 Potential landing spots in 2018 following release

Many teams - including the Texans, Giants, Jets and Steelers are rumored to be hot after Mathieu's services and the Pats would likely have to win a bidding war to land him. Mathieu was also due a $5 million roster bonus on March 16. Arizona had until today to decide whether they wanted to pick up the option for Mathieu guaranteeing the ball-hawking safety $19 million over the next two seasons. "We all wish Tyrann nothing but continued success in his career and beyond".

Areas the team could cut to help pay for a big contract would be wide receiver Brandon LaFell who would free up $4 million and safety George Iloka who would save the team $4.4 million. Despite his maturity issues at times when he was at LSU, the talent Mathieu possessed was simply too good to ignore, and when seeing how much of an impact he's made over the last five seasons, he was clearly worth the Cardinals taking. The "Honey Badger" made the Pro Bowl and was named an All-Pro in 2015, after piling up 89 tackles, 17 passes defensed, five interceptions, a forced fumble, a sack and a touchdown in 14 starts.

His rookie season ended prematurely when he tore the LCL and ACL in his left knee.

His 2016 season was cut short by a shoulder injury that landed him on injured reserve.


He was suspended by LSU before the 2012 season for failing drug tests and then was arrested on drug-related charges that October before leaving school to begin preparing for the National Football League draft.

Arizona Cardinals free safety Tyrann Mathieu (32) leads the team on to the field prior to an NFL football game against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field in Detroit, Sunday, Oct. 11, 2015.

Smith played in 13 games for Cincinnati in 2017 and started eight.
