Chiefs signing S Tyrann Mathieu to 3-year deal

  • Report Texans offer Tyrann Mathieu $9.5M per year but he will test market

On the morning after the news broke that Mathieu had chose to head to Kansas City, Houston made its next move: A source confirmed that 28-year-old safety Tashaun Gipson has agreed to a three-year, $22 million contract with the Texans. Mathieu earned notoriety during college at LSU for his ability to create turnovers, earning the nickname "Honey Badger".

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. He played his first five seasons with the Cardinals before moving on to Houston past year.

The request from the Cardinals to take a cut in pay after the 2017 season caused Mathieu to move on from the team that selected him in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft.




Signing Gipson at such a team friendly deal compared to the deals other safeties were getting in the first wave of free agency is an impressive addition for Gaine and the Texans front office.

During his first and only year with the Texans, Mathieu last year played 16 games, made 70 total tackles, three sacks and two interceptions.
