Tyrann Mathieu has been a consistent and durable safety in nine NFL seasons. He’s missed just one game in five years and is perhaps just hitting his stride, making either All-Pro or Pro Bowl teams the past three seasons.
Despite those accolades, he’s also a free agent. Mathieu was not re-signed by the Kansas City Chiefs and in the flurry of free agency didn’t sign on any dotted line. As teams prepare for the 2022 NFL Draft, Mathieu is still looking for his fall destination.
Bookies.com oddsmaker Adam Thompson has revealed his NFL odds for where the strong safety is likely to end up for Week 1 of the 2022 season.

|New Orleans Saints||+325|

Interest in the standout defensive back has heated up. Mathieu visited the New Orleans Saints earlier this offseason, and as a former LSU player his ties and interest in returning to the Bayou have been made clear.
He also had a meeting with the Eagles, who are in dire need of defensive backs before the season begins. Mathieu makes extra sense for Philly, as he can guard WRs 1-on-1 in the slot in addition to his regular safety duties.

The Saints and Eagles have a need and have the cap space to make it work. The Lions, Colts, Jets and Texans have the cash to be competitive in that regard, too.
The Saints’ defense had the NFL’s fourth-lowest QB rating. The Eagles ranked 23rd, so the sense-of-urgency category goes to Philly.
The Giants, Seahawks and Commanders have been strongly linked to safeties in the NFL Draft but could plug the hole prior to the first round on April 28. The Jets, Lions and Commanders ranked 31st, 30th and 29th in QB rating allowed, so their need for a defensive leader in the backfield is clear.
