Tyrann Mathieu values winning over money
Safety Tyrann Mathieu was released by the Arizona Cardinals earlier this week after refusing to take a pay cut, and now that he's on the open market, he told SI.com's Albert Breer that his top priority is to go to winning team.
“It’s not all about money for me,” he said. “I want to go somewhere where I can be completely immersed in football, and it’s not too much about anything but winning. I want to be a part of winning culture, where you feel that all the time. That’s all I want.”
Mathieu started all 16 games for the Cardinals last year, racking up 78 tackles with two interceptions and a forced fumble.Back to the NFL Newsfeed
