It turns out Mathieu, who signed with the Houston Texans following his release, is the fifth-highest-rated safety in this year's game, earning an overall rating of 93 out of a possible 100. This led Mathieu to tweet the following: "Damn I got cut and I’m a 93."
Mathieu was released by the Cardinals after reportedly being resistant toward taking a pay cut with the team. He was scheduled to make $19 million over the next two seasons. "Taking money out of my pocket, I don't like how that feels," Mathieu said, according to NFL.com.
