Brett Veach: We certainly love Tyrann Mathieu and he loves being here

Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu is set to become a free agent when the new league year starts in March.

Since signing with Kansas City before the 2019 season, Mathieu has been a key piece of the club’s defensive unit and one of the team’s clear leaders. He’s recorded 13 interceptions and 27 passes defensed in 47 regular-season games for the Chiefs along with an interception and four passes defensed in nine postseason contests for the club.

Speaking at the NFL Scouting Combine on Tuesday, Chiefs G.M. Brett Veach said he plans on meeting with Mathieu’s representation while in Indianapolis this week. But the team has already expressed to Mathieu a desire to keep him around, though that would have to be at the right price for both parties.

“After the Cincinnati game, we had a chance to talk,” Veach said, via “We communicated that we certainly love Tyrann — and Tyrann loves being here.”

Head coach Andy Reid also said, “We all love [Mathieu]. I think that’s important.”

Mathieu played five seasons for the Cardinals and a year with the Texans before signing with the Chiefs.

  1. Yeah, he must REALLY love being there when just a few short months ago he called the Ronald McDonald Kingdom “one of the most toxic fan bases in all of sports”. But, yeah, he LOVES being there!

  2. Veach must not read Tyranns twitter. Dude is constantly complaining about Chiefs fans and how disrespectful they are towards the team when they don’t play well. Great player, great leader

  3. Mathieu’s contract represents why KC will only be a 1 year dynasty like all the others. You can either respect the cap and draft steadily well and not overpay to sustain 10+ win seasons or you can be a moron and pretend it’s reinventing the wheel spending wildly and tossing picks.

    It’s called hubris. The pride comes before the fall and it’s coming fast in KC.

  4. Plays small, talks big. Hides from tackles, did nothing in the playoffs, go away. If Mathieu loves KC so much, take a pay cut. There’s a reason he’s been on 4 teams in 6 years. I also don’t forget guys chirping at fans after they call him out for his bad play and overall defense.

  5. Do “one year dynasties” host four consecutive AFC Championship games? Asking for a friend.
