Honey Badger signs 1-year deal with Houston Texans

Honey Badger signs 1-year deal with Houston Texans

Top free agent quarterbacks exchanged hands like baseball cards in the school yard.

Even though that season ended with the second ACL injury of Mathieu's short career, the Cardinals still went all-in on the Honey Badger.

This is a huge addition for the Texans.

It didn't take long for former Arizona Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu to find a new job. He was spectacular in 2015, making 89 tackles with five interceptions in 14 games.

Texan general manager, Brian Gaine, has made his biggest splash in free agency with the signing of Tyrann Mathieu.

Whatever the reason, the Texans have just added a player who has the potential to make a major impact. However Mathieu did appear in all 16 games in 2017, finishing with two interceptions and seven pass defenses.

In short, stop badgering Colbert and the Steelers for failing to sign the Honey Badger.

He was guaranteed $13.75 million of his 2018 and 2019 salaries if he was on the Cardinals' roster at 4 p.m. ET Wednesday when the new league year began, and was due a $5 million roster bonus Friday. But Mathieu refused. Efforts to restructure the contract reportedly failed, leading to his release. Basically, despite previous reports stating the safety might end up staying in Arizona, the franchise preferred to save some loot by releasing him.
