Reports: Saints agree on deal with S Tyrann Mathieu

The Saints are in agreement on a contract with All-Pro safety and New Orleans native Tyrann Mathieu, multiple outlets reported Monday.

The deal is expected to be signed Tuesday, per the reports.

Mathieu, who was born and raised in New Orleans, visited with the Saints in early April.

The three-time All-Pro, who turns 30 on May 13, started 16 games for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2021 and posted 76 tackles, three interceptions (one returned for a touchdown), three fumble recoveries and one sack.

A third-round pick out of LSU in 2013, Mathieu has 26 interceptions (three pick-sixes) and 10 sacks in 129 contests (120 starts) with the Arizona Cardinals (2013-17), Houston Texans (2018) and Chiefs. He won Super Bowl LIV in his first season with Kansas City.

LSU football posted a video tribute to Mathieu, saying “Louisiana’s son is coming home.”

The Saints selected only five players in the 2022 NFL Draft: wide receiver Chris Olave and offensive tackle Trevor Penning in the first round, cornerback Alontae Taylor in the second round, linebacker D’Marco Jackson in the fifth round and defensive tackle Jordan Jackson in the sixth.
