Tyrann Mathieu agrees $33 million deal with hometown Saints
After plenty of pushing, Tyrann Mathieu has clicked his heels and is heading home after agreeing a deal with the New Orleans Saints.
The New Orleans Saints have agreed a deal to sign All-Pro safety Tyrann Mathieu.
According to a report by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, three-time first-team All-Pro has reached an agreement on a three-year, $33million deal with the Saints.
Mathieu makes New Orleans return
The deal, which still needs to be signed, includes $18m in guaranteed money.
New Orleans-born Mathieu returns home after a three-season spell with the Kansas City Chiefs that saw him play in two Super Bowls.
The Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 in Super Bowl LIV before losing 31-9 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV.
Mathieu made 13 interceptions over the past three seasons, tied second among all safeties in that span.
His 27 pass breakups put him tied seventh over the same period and Mathieu will hope to have the same impact for his hometown team, who are looking to bounce back under new head coach Dennis Allen after missing the playoffs in 2021 with a 9-8 record.
