Saints Expected to Sign Tyrann Mathieu
Veteran safety Tyrann Mathieu will sign with the Saints in the coming days, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
The momentum for a deal between New Orleans and the two-time All-Pro safety gained steam prior to the NFL draft, and the contract was reached as anticipated on Monday.
Mathieu initially visited New Orleans in April and also had a visit with Philadelphia.
However, once a deal was not reached with either of the two clubs, it remained a mystery where Mathieu would play in 2022.
Kansas City was once seen as a candidate to re-sign their Pro Bowl safety, but ultimately moved on from Mathieu after signing safety Justin Reid to a deal earlier in free agency.
There is still plenty left in the tank for the soon-to-be 30-year-old Mathieu, who is tied for fifth in the NFL with 13 interceptions over the past three seasons with the Chiefs.
