Cardinals cut Tyrann Mathieu

Cardinals cut Tyrann Mathieu

However, Mathieu's promising career in Arizona was marred by injuries.

Through five seasons in Arizona, Mathieu recorded 41 passes defended, 24 tackles for a loss, 11 interceptions, four sacks, and four forced fumbles.

"I've never made a secret that Tyrann has always had a special place in my heart and always will", Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said in a statement announcing the release.

The Cardinals and Mathieu were involved in contract talks leading up to his release. The two sides had been working to try to restructure his contract before roughly $18 million became guaranteed this week, but it appears the team has opted to simply part ways. But considering he's only 25, Mathieu is probably looking for a deal in the three-year, $35 million range.

Mathieu spent an entire season out of football and slid to the third round before the Cardinals took a chance by selecting him in 2013.




Although it's unclear where Mathieu might want to play next, we do know one thing, he wants to play for a team that has a strong defense. He was a Pro Bowl and first-team All-Pro selection in 2015, but injuries have limited his time on the field.

Whether or not the Giants should sign Mathieu will likely come down to price.

NFL.com listed the Packers among the seven teams that make sense for the Honey Badger.

His rookie season ended prematurely when he tore the LCL and ACL in his left knee. He was a one-man wrecking crew in 2015, when he delivered 89 tackles, 17 passes defended, five interceptions and a touchdown for the Cardinals, who went 13-3 and had a top-five defense.

Meanwhile, fans of other National Football League teams - and National Football League players themselves - began wondering where the Honey Badger could land.
