With Mathieu now in the fold this no longer an issue. Mathieu will receive a $4.5-million signing bonus, which nearly matches the $5 million roster bonus he was due to receive from the Cardinals.

GLENDALE, AZ - DECEMBER 24: Free safety Tyrann Mathieu #32 of the Arizona Cardinals during the National Football League game against the New York Giants at the University of Phoenix Stadium on December 24, 2017 in Glendale, Arizona.

Former Cardinals' safety Tyrann Mathieu reached agreement on a one-year deal with the Houston Texans, sources tell ESPN.

Tyrann Mathieu reportedly signed a one-year contract with the Houston Texans Friday night that is worth up to $7 million and since then there's been quite a few fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers blasting the team and general manager Kevin Colbert for not landing him.

Texans star J.J. Watt hinted at the news by tweeting three honey emoji, referencing Mathieu's "Honey Badger" nickname. If such a conversation did happen, you have to know that Colbert was not interested in signing Mathieu to a one-year contract.

The 25-year-old started all 16 games for the Cardinals in 2017, tallying seven passes defensed and 78 tackles.

He due a $5 million roster bonus and another $13 million in guarantees on 2018 and 2019 salaries if he stayed on the team. The team saved almost $5 million but incurred a dead-money charge of more than $9 million by cutting him loose. That being said, as mentioned earlier, he's coming off a season in which he played in every single game.

Mathieu came on slowly in 2016, and his season was cut short by a shoulder injury, landing him on injured reserve for the third time in four seasons.
