Chiefs, Mathieu agree to 3-year, $42M deal

Chiefs, Mathieu agree to 3-year, $42M deal

Former New York Giants Landon Collins' new contract with Washington sets up a preview of what Houston Texans safety Tyrann Mathieu's asking price will be when he hits the open market.

It's never a good idea to count him out.

Watching the Kansas City Chiefs offense in the 2018 season was a thing of beauty. Now opted with a similar choice, Mathieu chose to bet on himself and test the waters of free agency.

Mathieu was the Chiefs' top safety target in the offseason, per a source.

He comes at a considerable cost. Reiter, claimed off waivers from Cleveland in September, signed a two-year deal in December worth up to $5.5 million, with a $1 million signing bonus.

Solskjaer admitted United's tame opening may have been in part caused by fatigue after their European heroics. "Not at all", he said.

But his addition could be the first step in returning some respectability to the Chiefs' defense.

Tyrann Mathieu will join the Kansas City Chiefs with a three-year deal worth up to $42 million, according to NFL Network and other reports Monday (March 11).

Mathieu is not the only former LSU player to agree on a lucrative multi-year deal Monday. Mathieu will be only 29 when this contract expires. He only played seven games in 2017 as he battled an ongoing foot injury, and he finished that season on injured reserve.

The Chiefs hope to improve one of the NFL's worst defences this off-season, and the idea of pairing Mathieu with Eric Berry in the secondary is a strong start. He's primarily played free safety, but did appear at corner last season for the Texans. Mathieu will step into a safety position that could use both depth and high-end talent.
