While the specifics of the deal are not yet available, Saints fans should be excited for Mathieu’s arrival.
After all, he’s one of the best safeties in the game and his signing will boost an already loaded Saints secondary.
Head coach Dennis Allen will put much attention on their defense, and signing Mathieu gives him a veteran presence who is a reliable last line of defense.
Aside from him, the Saints will also have several playmakers on their depth chart.
Tyrann Mathieu, Marshon Lattimore, Paulson Adebo, CJ Gardner-Johnson, Marcus Maye, Bradley Roby, PJ Williams, Alontae Taylor. LAWD that secondary would be 🔥🔥🔥

Winning a world championship in three seasons is something hard to ignore.
Likewise, Mathieu also gained two of his three First-Team All-Pro selections with the Chiefs.
But with him moving to the NFC South, he gets to compete against Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady again.
Their exchange of verbal jabs have been well documented.
