Texans offered Mathieu long-term deal worth over $9.5M per year

Jackson, a fan favorite and highly respected inside the Texans' locker room, reportedly received a three-year, $33 million deal.

Mathieu, 26, started all 16 games during his only season with the Houston Texans in 2018 and registered 89 tackles and two interceptions.

It's easy to assume Mathieu will start in place of Ron Parker at the free safety spot, but he's highly versatile and should be able to give Steve Spagnuolo some options on the defensive side. He's primarily played free safety, but did appear at corner last season for the Texans. Following the end of the 2018 season, Mathieu claimed that it was extremely important that he remain in Houston as a member of the Texans. On Monday evening, Mathieu opted to join the Chiefs on a three-year contract that is reportedly worth $42 million.

The contract will not become official until the beginning of the new league year at 3 p.m.

With Morse's departure, the Chiefs will likely turn to Austin Reiter as their starting center. He was on a one-year, $7 million deal. His full 2017 season came after he missed the last two games in 2015 with an ACL tear and then missed six games to a nagging shoulder injury in 2016 that ultimately put him on injured reserve.

The NFL Network's Ian Rappoport is also reporting about the impeding free agent deal, saying Mathieu was their top target. Foles had been in Philadelphia, where he helped the Eagles to their Super Bowl LII win.
