Byron Buxton injury: Twins star removed after awkward slide vs Red Sox
Bully Mathieu deleted a tweet implying he could speak to the Philadelphia Eagles.
While it remains to be seen which new NFL team Tyrann Mathieu, former standout safety for the Kansas City Chiefs, will play for, keep an eye on his touchdown with the Philadelphia Eagles this offseason.
Mathieu responded to a tweet suggesting that the reason he hasn’t signed with The Birds in his free agency yet is because of Kyle Hamilton’s declining draft stock. The former Notre Dame defenseman could potentially fall out of the top 10 into the teens, right where the Eagles are picking. Hamilton has massive advantages and would play with a much cheaper deal than Mathieu.
Here, Mathieu responds to the tweet in question with “Lol yeah ok.”
Bully Mathieu deletes tweet implying Philadelphia Eagles are in game
With Justin Reid coming on board in Kansas City, a return to the Chiefs feels next to impossible for Mathieu. Consider that the Indianapolis Colts signed former Eagles safetyman Rodney McLeod and then admitted former NFL Defensive Player of the Year Stephon Gilmore to their secondary school, and Mathieu isn’t going there either. While his hometown New Orleans Saints are an option, so are the Eagles.
If Hamilton dropped to 15th place after Philadelphia, that would be incredible. It would be even better if the Eagles could then pass it on and still get it with their second first-round pick in 18th place. Simply put, the Eagles may have an interest in drafting Hamilton, but they can’t count on him, nor does it suit them. For this reason, Mathieu is an option in free agency.
Overall, the Eagles would be a great landing spot for Mathieu. They surpassed being a playoff team a year ago. He would replace McLeod in secondary school. Consider that Jonathan Gannon is an up-and-coming defensive coordinator in the league, and there’s a lot to like about Philadelphia for someone like Mathieu. However, he and Hamilton are mutually exclusive.
No matter what happens, there will be a lot of buzz when Mathieu deletes his tweet about the Eagles’ plans.
