2019 Free Agency Profile: Tyrann Mathieu

Tyrann Mathieu is coming off his third-highest overall grade (75.1) in his six-year career. As part of a scary Houston defense last season, Mathieu ranked 25th out of 102 qualifying safeties in overall grade. Mathieu still has the makings of an electric playmaker on defense, and he should be a difference-maker wherever he ends up in 2019.

Pro Football Focus will be running through 50-plus pending/soon-to-be free agents between January 7, 2019 and March 8, 2019 to offer a detailed analysis of the top players bound for new contracts and (possibly) new teams in 2019. We want to house all of the important grades, advanced stats and key analysis for each player, so you know exactly what your team is getting in free agency.

To review all of our free agent profiles in one place, please visit this page.

Mathieu was a force against the run last season, finishing with the fifth-best run-defense grade (84.6) among safeties. The honey badger should only continue to improve as he heads into free agency.
