Seven potential landing spots for Tyrann Mathieu

Seven potential landing spots for Tyrann Mathieu

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. In 2015, he had 5 interceptions including one returned for a touchdown, 17 passes defensed, a forced fumble, a sack and 89 total tackles in just 14 games.

"I've never made a secret that Tyrann has always had a special place in my heart and always will", said Cardinals general manager Steve Keim. "While we all understand this apart of the business, that certainly doesn't make it any easier".

Mathieu had a salary cap hit of over $14 million before he was released.

The Cardinals were looking to restructure $18 million of Mathieu contract, before it becomes guaranteed at the start of the league year on Wednesday afternoon.

He played just two years of his five years, $62.5 million extension.

Mathieu had reportedly been asked to take a pay cut by the Cardinals, something Mathieu was reportedly resistant to doing.

The recruiting onslaught started when J.J. Watt shot out a tweet inviting Mathieu to Houston. He earned first-team All-Pro honors from ProFootballFocus.com as a slot cornerback and was named to the All-Rookie team by the Professional Football Writers of America (PFWA).

He tore his left ACL in 2013 and his right one in 2015. Bruce Arians, twice an NFL Coach of the Year, suffered from health problems over the following two seasons that seemed to take a toll on the offensive guru's ability to keep the team in playoff contention. The New York Giants are considered a team to "keep an eye on" as the Honey Badger tests the free agent market, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
