PHOENIX (AP) Former LSU defensive back Tyrann Mathieu has signed a four-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals.
The team's third-round draft pick, Mathieu did not play last season after repeated off-field issues.
The deal could be worth up to just over $3 million. According to a person familiar with the contract, Mathieu does not get his entire slotted salary bonus of $662,500 at first. Initially, he gets $265,000 with the remainder spread out over the next three seasons, as long as he does not get suspended for substance abuse.
