Tyrann Mathieu handled his release from the Cardinals in the classiest way

Tyrann Mathieu handled his release from the Cardinals in the classiest way

I think the recent release of former Arizona Cardinals' safety Tyrann Mathieu is one of those rare opportunities that Dallas must break the bank for.

Arizona Cardinals free safety Tyrann Mathieu (32) leads the team on to the field prior to an NFL football game against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field in Detroit, Sunday, Oct. 11, 2015.

Oakland set an NFL record for ineptitude in their secondary in 2017, becoming the first unit to go 10 games without recording an interception in league history. However, an agreement never came to fruition, and the 25-year old defensive back is now available. He was due $13.75 million in guaranteed salary for 2018 and 2019 had he been on the Cardinals' roster at 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday, and Mathieu would have been due a $5 million roster bonus on Friday. Arizona had until today to decide whether they wanted to pick up the option for Mathieu guaranteeing the ball-hawking safety $19 million over the next two seasons. Mathieu said the team asked him to take a pay cut.

The report said the New York Giants are a potential landing spot for Mathieu, who played for New York's defensive coordinator James Bettcher while in Arizona.

Le Parisien reported last December that the Finance Ministry is seeking to fine Amazon 10 million euros. Spokespeople for Apple France and Google France did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Within minutes of his release, two NFL coaches had already reached out to NFL Network's Steve Wyche, expressing hope that their teams would pursue the safety-cornerback hybrid.

Mathieu suffered a season-ending knee injury late in the 2013 season. With a deal in place to bring in free agent quarterback Sam Bradford, if they wish to make any other moves, they must redo some contracts or make some cuts.

Mathieu has spent the past five seasons as a member of the Cardinals. He was an All-Pro in 2015, when he had five interceptions and 17 passes defensed.
