The Chiefs defense is going to start free agency with a major upgrade at the safety spot, as reports say the team is going to ink free agent safety Tyrann Mathieu to a three-year deal.
Adam Schefter of ESPN says that the deal for Mathieu is worth $42 million, a bargain considering the Redskins are giving safety Landon Collins a deal for six years at $84 million.
Last season Matthieu played with the Houston Texans, inking a one-year deal after being released by the Arizona Cardinals, where he started his career as a third-round pick back in 2013.
The move comes after the team announced the release of linebacker Justin Houston on Sunday.
