As former LSU defensive back Tyrann Mathieu tries to shift his focus from returning to college football to preparing for the NFL draft, he’ll get a change of scenery.
Jennifer Hale of WVUE reports that Mathieu has moved to South Florida, where he’ll live with the family of Cardinals defensive back Patrick Peterson.
Peterson, who attended LSU, and Mathieu are close friends. After Peterson left LSU, Mathieu changed to No. 7, which had been worn by Peterson in Baton Rouge.
Per Hale, Mathieu hopes to escape negative influences in Louisiana, where he recently was charged with marijuana possession. He previously was kicked off the LSU football team after failing multiple drug tests.
