The Kansas City Chiefs got their guy, signing S Tyrann Mathieu. Mathieu comes to the Chiefs having played for the Arizona Cardinals and the Houston Texans. Matthew replaces All-Pro Eric Berry as the leader in the secondary. Mathieu will have the opportunity to become a leader for the Spagnuolo defense as a whole with the departure of Justin Houston and Dee Ford as well.
Mathieu gives the Chiefs a dynamic playmaker who can fill roles at slot cornerback, strong safety and free safety. Playing man and zone coverages, the film shows an All-Pro level competitor. That versatility earned him a contract on par with Berry, Earl Thomas and Landon Collins.
