Tyrann Mathieu is coming off three seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, where he had a lot of success. With them, he was named to two First-Team All-Pro teams and played in two Pro Bowls, as well as winning a Super Bowl ring in 2019.
Mathieu has been selected to three Pro Bowls and four All-Pro teams during his career. He was also chosen to the NFL’s All-Decade Team for the decade of 2010.
Mathieu, on the other hand, will turn 30 this spring. He may not have the same market now as he did in 2019 – or even the previous year.
