Landon Collins deal gives preview of what Tyrann Mathieu would command

Now opted with a similar choice, Mathieu chose to bet on himself and test the waters of free agency.

The Chiefs were aggressive with Mathieu, who they viewed as the best and most complete safety on the free-agent market. Whatever the case, the Collins deal gives insight as to what general manager Brian Gaine and the Texans will have to pay to keep Mathieu around for the long term.

Mathieu was the Chiefs' top safety target in the offseason, per a source.

The Texans made a generous offer to Mathieu, but it was well below the Kansas City Chiefs' offer of three years and $42 million, which was roughly $3 million to $4 million more per year that what the Texans had in mind for the Honey Badger, who spent one season in Houston.

After opening day of the NFL's legal tampering period, none of those things turned out to either matter enough or be true.

Mathieu is also still only 26-years-old and should give the Chiefs a prime performer in the secondary.

A third-round pick out of LSU by the Arizona Cardinals in 2013, Mathieu was a first-team All-Pro selection and Pro Bowl participant in 2015. He's primarily played free safety, but did appear at corner last season for the Texans. He played his first five seasons with the Cardinals before moving on to Houston a year ago.

Despite missing at least two games in each of his first four National Football League seasons, Mathieu has played all 16 games in each of his last two. Sports first reported the Chiefs were close to a deal with Mathieu on Monday evening. He hit the open market and signed a one-year deal with the Texans.
