According to Rapoport, Mathieu was Kansas City's top target in free agency. He signed a $7 million deal for a single year last offseason as a prove-it sort of role with the Texans after dealing with injury concerns in previous years.
The Houston Texans offered safety Tyrann Mathieu a long-term deal worth more than $9.5 million annually, sources told Albert Breer of The MMQB. After bottoming out in 2018, we've seen two players both reset the market in a matter of hours to open the legal tampering period in 2019. Per the report, the deal with Kansas City will be worth $42 million over three years after Mathieu played on a one-year prove-it contract in Houston for 2018.
His best season as a pro came during the 2015 season with the Arizona Cardinals when he was named an All-Pro, and went to the Pro Bowl after creating six turnovers, five were interceptions.

By adding Mathieu, the Chiefs create a formidable safety tandem between the 26-year-old and strong safety Eric Berry. He's primarily played free safety, but did appear at corner last season for the Texans.
The contract will not become official until the beginning of the new league year at 3 p.m.
Yes, the Chiefs - who aren't exactly flush with cap space, even after releasing Justin Houston - are paying quite a pretty penny to land the services of Mathieu. Kwon Alexander, a linebacker, agreed on a $54 million deal with the San Francisco 49ers.
