Saints reach agreement on 3-year deal with Tyrann Mathieu


Monday morning the news broke early that Tyrann Mathieu was expected to be joining the New Orleans Saints. The deal was not yet finalized, but seems that all was in line for the Honey Badger to return to his hometown. Now, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the contract is in place and Mathieu is officially a Saint.

The deal is for three years and $33 million with $18 million guaranteed. Often times the contract structure (void years, guaranteed money, etc) of three-year deals set up for a shorter lifespan, often just one year. But these terms indicate that it’s likely Mathieu will play out the next three seasons in New Orleans.
