Tyrann Mathieu Makes Free Agency Decision: NFL World Reacts

Tyrann Mathieu on the field for the Chiefs.

The best safety on the free-agent market has finally found a new home.

Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Tyrann Mathieu is set to sign with the New Orleans Saints. The deal is going to be finalized in the coming days.

The NFL world is happy that Mathieu has finally found a new home heading into next season.

Mathieu spent the last three seasons with the Chiefs before they decided to not make him an offer. Before that, he played with the Houston Texans for one season and the Arizona Cardinals for five seasons.

He finished the 2021 season with 76 total tackles (60 solo), one sack, three fumble recoveries, three interceptions, and six passes defended. He'll now be joining a team that's looking to win in 2022, especially with Jameis Winston back healthy.

It remains to be seen how many years he signs for, plus how much guaranteed money he gets.
