Tyrann Mathieu agrees to 3-year deal with Chiefs

That wasn't enough to convince the safety not to field offers from other teams such as the Detroit Lions and Kansas City Chiefs, per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. Tyrann Mathieu should certainly help their cause.

Two people familiar with the deal tell The Associated Press the Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to a $42 million, three-year deal with Tryann Mathieu in a big boost to their defensive backfield.

It now looks like the Chiefs have gotten their man.

Gipson is one of only five safeties in the National Football League since 2012 to record at least 20 interceptions. Mathieu earned notoriety during college at LSU for his ability to create turnovers, earning the nickname "Honey Badger".

The NFL Network's Ian Rappoport is also reporting about the impeding free agent deal, saying Mathieu was their top target. But they were said to be offering him less than $10 million per season.

Mathieu played the 2018 season on a one-year deal with Houston following his release from the Arizona Cardinals. Especially if a healthier Berry can return to form, that gives the Kansas City defense a tremendous boost where they need it if they want to reach their Super Bowl potential that they have with Patrick Mahomes helming the offense.
