Free agent safety Tyrann Mathieu is visiting his hometown team.

Mathieu, who was born and raised in New Orleans and was a star at LSU, is visiting the Saints today.

However, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network characterizes it as more of a casual visit while Mathieu is in New Orleans with family and friends, and says that no signing is imminent.

Mathieu was a third-round pick of the Cardinals in 2013. He played four years in Arizona, one in Houston and the last three in Kansas City.

It’s been a quiet free agency period for Mathieu, who is No. 20 on our list of the Top 100 free agents. The Saints are the first team he has visited.

  1. Don’t understand why KC would let this guy go….their defense showed to be far worse when he was not in the game

  2. For as good as he thinks he is, teams don’t seem to agree… All talk, no tackle…

  3. The reason the Chiefs let him walk, and the reason he hasn’t signed on anywhere else yet, are the same. Unrealistic salary demands.

  4. The Chiefs maintained their bottom 1/3 defense just as easy with him in the lineup as they they did without. I’d take a 28 year old 3rd stringer over this mouth any day. He bashed the fans and never showed up when it mattered. Him hiding from Josh Allen was his season highlight and showed who he really is, good riddance.
