This is a developing story, watch FOX4 for the latest developments about Mathieu and all Chiefs moves during free agency.

Despite pawing at the safety market at the trade deadline past year, the Chiefs may end up in a better place with Mathieu, who will turn 27 just before training camp.

The Kansas City Chiefs addressed their biggest weakness on the first day of free agency by signing former Houston Texans safety Tryann Mathieu.

Safety Tyrann Mathieu intends to sign a three-year, $42m deal with the Kansas City Chiefs, according to multiple reports Monday. He was the No. 1 target on their board, and they pursued him quickly once the legal tampering period began, wrapping up the agreement within eight hours.

Tim Alberta, the Politico reporter who interviewed her, slammed her for trying to "avoid owning" her comments. She continued: "Our nation is having a hard conversation and we believe this is great progress".

In Houston, Mathieu notched 89 tackles and two interceptions for former Chiefs DC/HC Romeo Crennel's defense. He's primarily played free safety, but did appear at corner last season for the Texans.

Last offseason, Mathieu signed with the Texans after the Arizona Cardinals asked him to take a cut in pay before giving him his release.

By adding Mathieu, the Chiefs create a formidable safety tandem between the 26-year-old and strong safety Eric Berry. Sports first reported the Chiefs were close to a deal with Mathieu on Monday evening. He only played seven games in 2017 as he battled an ongoing foot injury, and he finished that season on injured reserve. He was on a one-year, $7 million deal.
