JJ Watt recruiting Tyrann Mathieu to Texans

JJ Watt recruiting Tyrann Mathieu to Texans”

However the harsh reality is no matter who the Cardinals got at quarterback, Mathieu's days in Arizona were numbered.

Both the Giants and Jets could be potential suitors for Mathieu.

If Mathieu doesn't want to take Watt up on his offer, there's plenty of other options. But considering he's only 25, Mathieu is probably looking for a deal in the three-year, $35 million range. Here's their chance to plug an ever better player into that role.

The Cardinals took a flyer on Mathieu but not before deep discussions between Keim, Cardinals Owner Michael Bidwill and Mathieu's agent regarding his off-field behavior on draft day. Mathieu is turning 26 in a few months, and he's a fan favorite in Arizona with a unique story.

Here are the details on Drew Brees' contract with the Saints.

Mathieu was entering the third season of a five-year, $62.5 million contract. There's no rookie that could bring the level of play Mathieu could.

Mathieu recieved a ton of support from teammates and rivals alike.

Of New York's core of safeties, which consists of Landon Collins, Darian Thompson, Andrew Adams and Ryan Murphy, only Thompson is a free safety and struggled at times during his first full season.

In 2014 Mathieu suffered what some would call a sophomore slump. He has 307 tackles and 11 interceptions for his career. He finished the previous two seasons on injured reserve, although he was named to the Pro Bowl in 2015.

The Cardinals also experienced its most success as a team in the Honey Badger era in 2015.

If Mathieu wants to go to Pittsburgh, it sounds like he's wanted there.

Last season, when the Bucs made it official with new defensive line coach Brentson Buckner, Mathieu tweeted that he was his "future defensive coordinator". In 2017, he played in the slot on 66 percent of the snaps and only 17 percent as a free safety, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Mathieu's versatility makes him a ideal fit in today's National Football League as he's able to cover slot receivers and play zone coverage, while sticking his nose in there against the run and in the short passing game with linebacker-like qualities.
