The New Orleans Saints have signed unrestricted free agent safety Tyrann Mathieu (pronounced TY-run MATH-you) to a three-year contract, it was announced today by Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis.

In nine NFL seasons, he has played in 129 regular season games with 120 starts and has posted career totals of 605 tackles (519 solo), 41 stops for loss, ten sacks for a loss of 78 yards, 26 interceptions for 335 returns yards, three brought back for touchdowns, 76 passes defensed, four forced fumbles, six fumble recoveries and ten special teams stops. His 13 picks since 2019 are tied for fifth in the NFL. Mathieu has been selected to three Pro Bowls, three Associated Press All-Pro teams and the Pro Football Hall of Fame's 2010's All-Decade Team.

Mathieu has appeared in 11 postseason contests with ten starts and has produced career playoff totals of 49 tackles (40 solo), one interception and four passes defensed, including being part of Kansas City's Super Bowl LIV championship team.
