Report: Former LSU standout Tyrann Mathieu cut by Arizona Cardinals, now a free agent
After signing a five-year deal worth $62.5million ahead of the 2016 season, he was due roughly $11m in both 2018 and 2019 after making $21m over the previous two seasons combined. In 2015, he was named to the Pro Bowl and the NFL All-Pro Team. "While we all understand this apart of the business, that certainly doesn't make it any easier".
However the Cardinals have continued to possess huge positional talent, a fact that's been disguised by their 7-9 and 8-8 records over the last two seasons.
At LSU, Mathieu was one of the most dynamic defensive players college football had known, becoming a finalist for the Heisman Trophy as a sophomore.
No matter how you analyze Tyrann Mathieu's career or his 2017 season, there's no doubting this: He was a fan favorite in the Valley. Mathieu only appeared in 10 games the following season and finished with a career-low 35 tackles. There are few safeties as versatile as Mathieu as they are a rare bread, so the Bengals would need to make a move fast and be willing to spend some money. But when healthy, he is still an impact player.
Mathieu during his five seasons as a Cardinal was ubiquitous in the Phoenix community. However, a torn ACL in Mathieu's right knee during week 16 caused the safety to miss the entire off-season which affected him the following year.
He was suspended by LSU before the 2012 season for failing drug tests and then was arrested on drug-related charges that October before leaving school to begin preparing for the National Football League draft.
Arizona drafted Mathieu in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft, taking him 69th overall.
