Mathieu, drafted in 2013 by the Arizona Cardinals, will play now for their fourth franchise in the NFL. Most recently, he played for the Kansas City Chiefs where he won a Super Bowl championship in 2020.
The safety will arrive to a reinforced lockerroom that recently added Marcus Maye in the offseason.
