The Arizona Cardinals have decided to release former LSU defensive back Tyrann Mathieu after five seasons with the team. The Cardinals selected the Honey Badger in the third round of the 2013 draft. Per ESPN:

Mathieu was cut just hours before $5.75 million of his 2018 salary and $8 million of his 2019 salary were to be guaranteed Wednesday afternoon, the first day of the league year. Mathieu was also due a $5 million roster bonus on March 16.

He was asked by the Cardinals to take a pay cut on Thursday but declined.

"I've never made a secret that Tyrann has always had a special place in my heart and always will," Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said in a statement. "While we all understand this is a part of the business, that certainly doesn't make it any easier. We all wish Tyrann nothing but continued success in his career and beyond."

As much as I'd like to have him as a Saint, I hope he doesn't come to New Orleans. Too many problems, old and new, are in that city for Tyrann. It would be an awful move for him after so many years of building himself back up.

Gotta give him more credit than that. He has become a completely better person and man.

^what Shalimar said. He isn’t the kid who went to LSU and almost gave up everything to smoke a blunt or two or three or four.
