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

The Kansas City Chiefs addressed their biggest weakness on the first day of free agency by signing former Houston Texans safety Tryann Mathieu. Per the report, the deal with Kansas City will be worth $42 million over three years after Mathieu played on a one-year prove-it contract in Houston for 2018.

Now that the dust settled, let's examine how the Honey Badger has played recently, and how he fits into the defensive plans of the Chiefs moving forward.

That $14 million per year price tag is identical as the one for free agent safety Landon Collins, who agreed to a massive six-year, $84 million deal with the Washington Redskins earlier today.

A third-round pick out of LSU by the Arizona Cardinals in 2013, Mathieu was a first-team All-Pro selection and Pro Bowl participant in 2015.

For the second year in a row, Mathieu will test the waters in free agency.

It didn't take the Texans long to move on from losing Tyrann Mathieu to the Chiefs on Monday evening.

Despite missing at least two games in each of his first four National Football League seasons, Mathieu has played all 16 games in each of his last two.

Mathieu, 26, had 89 tackles, 3 sacks, 2 interceptions, 8 passes defended and a fumble recovery last season for Houston.
