Tyrann Mathieu is signing with the Saints

According to Ian Rapoport, the Saints are signing veteran safety Tyrann Mathieu.

Fantasy Impact

After weeks of negotiating and several visits with the Saints, the former All-Pro safety has committed to sign with the team. The terms of the contract remain unknown but this is the largest post-draft acquisition to date. During his time with the Chiefs, Mathieu racked up three consecutive Pro-Bowl appearances as well as being voted a first-team All-Pro during his 2020 season.

Tyrann Mathieu to resume talks with Saints

The New Orleans Saints are expected to resume talks with free agent safety Tyrann Mathieu.

Fantasy Impact

The Saints are now thin at the safety position, having Marcus Williams leave in free agency and Malcom Jenkins retire this offseason. They failed to land a safety in the draft, and it appears they are now setting their sights back on Mathieu and will make an aggressive push to sign him. The veteran safety would help fill the gap in the Saints' defense and bring good veteran leadership.

Tyrann Mathieu has virtual visit with Eagles

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that free agent safety Tyrann Mathieu and the Philadelphia Eagles had a virtual meeting on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Mathieu, who’s a three time first-team all-pro and 2019 Super Bowl champion, met with the New Orleans Saints earlier this week but left without agreeing to a deal. The Eagles have an opening at safety with their 2021 starter, Rodney McLeod, still out on the open market. Mathieu, who will be 30 years-old and entering his 10th season in the NFL in 2022, is still performing at a high level late into his career. In 2021, Mathieu recorded 76 tackles, 3 interceptions, 6 pass breakups, and was selected to his 3rd Pro Bowl. Mathieu would be a welcomed addition to an Eagles defense that gave up a league worst 69.4% completion percentage to opposing quarterbacks in 2021.

Tyrann Mathieu visiting New Orleans Saints

Tyrann Mathieu is visiting the New Orleans Saints' facility while he is with family and friends in New Orleans.

Fantasy Impact

Mathieu, A.K.A. the Honey Badger, still is without a team and is exploring free agency. This visit does not guarantee that he will sign with the Saints. The three-time All Pro played with Kansas City for the last three season and recorded 60-plus tackles in each season. If he were to sign with New Orleans, he would fill a void left from the retired Malcolm Jenkins.

Tyrann Mathieu heavily linked to Saints

The Saints are viewed as one of the top landing spots for impending free agent safety Tyrann Mathieu, according to Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network.

Fantasy Impact

Mathieu makes sense with the Saints for plenty of reasons. First of all, New Orleans is set to lose safety Marcus Williams during free agency, meaning Mathieu fills a positional need. Additionally, the star safety grew up in New Orleans and spent his college career at LSU, so signing with the Saints would represent a homecoming of sorts. The idea of returning to Louisiana apparently appeals to Mathieu, with Wilson noting that the Saints "are of high interest to him, and it’s a mutual situation of interest." The three-time Pro Bowler appeared in 16 games this past season, racking up 76 tackles, three interceptions, and one sack. He is viewed as a key leader on and off the field. Mathieu will also generate interest from teams like the Ravens, suggests Wilson. Furthermore, the Chiefs, who employed Mathieu in 2021 and are letting him test the open market, will surely be in the mix, too.
