Recently, the NFL world saw one of the most shocking moves made by the Kansas City Chiefs. They have let go of their safety, Tyrann Mathieu, who has now signed a fresh contract with the New Orleans Saints.
Mathieu, who is a 3 time Pro Bowler, was one of the strongest safety’s in the 2022 free agent market. Tyrann expressed his dissatisfaction with the whole scenario.
While talking to Jim Rome, he revealed he felt hurt that the Chiefs did not consider re-signing him. Mathieu further stated in an interview via Saturday Down South – “No doubt about it, I’m definitely motivated by it.”
The negligence by the Chiefs has hit Mathieu where it should hurt the most and has definitely stimulated his desire to bring back the glory for the New Orleans Saints in the present season.
Tyrann Mathieu joins his home side: New Orleans Saints
Tyrann Mathieu, a local Louisiana lad, is looking forward to playing for his home team, New Orleans Saints.
Mathieu shares a strong bond with Louisiana, as he started his career with the LSU Tigers. He is quite happy with the reunion, but his first choice had always been to play for Kansas City Chiefs, and he had definitely expected a comeback.
Mathieu further stated – “I have a lot to accomplish on the field and off the field. To come back here and play where I grew up is really good, really important. Disappointment. Hurt. So now, in my community, I’m gonna be the everyday reminder. You can get better. You can turn your life around.”

Mathieu has always been vocal with the press and again, this time, he couldn’t help but confess the decision that bothered him. Kansas City may have failed his trust, but New Orleans Saints did not leave a chance to acquire him, which has further strengthened their defense. They are now quite motivated to face their rivals with full force.
Mathieu, while recalling his previous years in the NFL, stated – “This is not the first time this has happened to me, you know Jim. I’m getting ready to play for my fourth team.”
Good news is spreading among the Saints fans who are all really excited to see him play on their side. To add the cherry on the cake, Tyrann also stated this might be the last stop in his NFL career, and he would want to stick around for a long time.
