Reports say Chiefs expected to sign safety Tyrann Mathieu

Report Texans offer Tyrann Mathieu $9.5M per year but he will test market

The Texans were reportedly working on a long-term deal for Mathieu, as well, which, according to Albert Breer, would have paid him in excess of $9.5 million per year.

Mathieu will now man the back end of the Chiefs secondary with another big-name safety, Eric Berry. The Texans felt the same way and made Mathieu their No. 1 priority during this free agency period.

Mathieu, 26, started all 16 games during his only season with the Houston Texans in 2018 and registered 89 tackles and two interceptions.

The NFL free agency frenzy is underway and the opening day did not go well for the Houston Texans.

Meanwhile, the Chiefs are down one starting offensive lineman.

Teams can officially sign free agents when the new league year begins March 13. While there is sure to be some contractual arm wrestling there - I can not imagine being able to sustain two of the five biggest cap hits in the league at one position, even if you deal Dee Ford and cut Justin Houston - and imagining those two in a defensive backfield together should be intimidating for even the division's most tenured quarterbacks. Morse started all 49 games in which he appeared during his four years in Kansas City. His full 2017 season came after he missed the last two games in 2015 with an ACL tear and then missed six games to a nagging shoulder injury in 2016 that ultimately put him on injured reserve. Foles had been in Philadelphia, where he helped the Eagles to their Super Bowl LII win.
