NFL Rumors: Saints Heavily Targeting Star Safety

According to Adam Schefter, the New Orleans Saints are set to heavily pursue free agent safety Tyrann Mathieu. 

Now that the draft is officially over, it does make sense for New Orleans to step up their efforts to land Mathieu. They decided against drafting a safety, so it does open the door for them to bring in Mathieu to strengthen their roster. 

This offseason, the Saints have been linked to Mathieu, but now the speculation is only growing further. He would be an amazing addition to the Saints, too. In 129 career games between the Arizona Cardinals, Houston Texans, and Kansas City Chiefs, he has 76 combined tackles, 26 interceptions, and 10.0 sacks. With that, he is also a three-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro. 

Alas, it will be intriguing to see if Mathieu is a Saint in 2022.
