Tyrann Mathieu was released by the Arizona Cardinals on Wednesday, but interest in his services is high. According to a report, at least seven teams are interested in Mathieu.
Joe Arrigo of Fox 5 in Las Vegas has reported that the Green Bay Packers, New York Giants, New York Jets, New Orleans Saints, Seattle Seahawks, Houston Texans, Oakland Raiders, and possibly others are interested in the former All-Pro defensive back.

Mathieu played in all 16 games for the Cardinals in 2017. He recorded 66 tackles, defended seven passes, intercepted two others, and recorded one sack.
Even if he’s not quite the game breaker that he once was, Mathieu’s versatility would make for a nice addition to nearly any defense in the league. So, we’re not surprised that seven teams are interested in him. We also wouldn’t be surprised to see that list grow in the coming days.
