Houston Texans sign former LSU star Tyrann Mathieu

NFL free agent rumors J.J. Watt breaks news of Tyrann Mathieu's 1-year deal with Texans

With Mathieu now in the fold this no longer an issue. The deal is worth $7 million in 2018, per Schefter.

Mathieu, a Pro Bowler and a first-team All-Pro safety in 2015, is coming off of a season where he led the entire National Football League in snaps played. Friday, he found a new home - albeit for one year, at least for now.

Despite the rumors that the Kansas City Chiefs could be a prime contender for Tyrann Mathieu's services, the former Arizona Cardinals safety signed a 1-year deal with the Houston Texans.

The Texans, assuming quarterback Deshaun Watson is healthy again after tearing his ACL, have a chance to be good. However Mathieu did appear in all 16 games in 2017, finishing with two interceptions and seven pass defenses. If such a conversation did happen, you have to know that Colbert was not interested in signing Mathieu to a one-year contract.

Only 25-years-old, Mathieu still has a lot left in the tank and should be a player of huge impact for several more years.

Mathieu was cut in a salary-related maneuver, as he was due over $14 million in 2018. After a relatively surprising release, Tyrann Mathieu is heading to Houston to join Jadeveon Clowney, J.J. Watt, and Deshaun Watson with the Texans. That being said, as mentioned earlier, he's coming off a season in which he played in every single game.
