Chiefs land Tyrann Mathieu to three-year deal

Mathieu joines Eric Berry in Kansas City for now, but Berry might not be sticking around for long after the Honey Badger signs his contract. He'd like to stay but will test free agency before making a commitment, according to Breer.

Teams can officially sign free agents when the new league year begins March 13.

Thomas, who has been seeking a trade or extension from Seattle over the a year ago, is one of the last marquee free agents safeties available although he's been reported to be seeking the most money. That wasn't enough to convince the safety not to field offers from other teams such as the Detroit Lions and Kansas City Chiefs, per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

Two people familiar with the deal tell The Associated Press the Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to a $42 million, three-year deal with Tryann Mathieu in a big boost to their defensive backfield.

The Chiefs reportedly secured their top target in safety Tyrann Mathieu.

Mathieu, 26, had 89 tackles, 3 sacks, 2 interceptions, 8 passes defended and a fumble recovery last season for Houston.

Last offseason, Mathieu signed with the Texans after the Arizona Cardinals asked him to take a cut in pay before giving him his release.
