Could former LSU star Tyrann Mathieu sign with the New Orleans Saints as a free agent?

If Saints Pro Bowl receiver Michael Thomas has his way, Mathieu will.

Thomas then reacted by taking the time to send a recruiting message to Mathieu:

A native of New Orleans, Mathieu played for LSU from 2010-2011.

Mathieu has spent all five seasons of his career with the Cardinals, totaling 11 interceptions.

Is it realistic to envision Mathieu with the Saints?

No, but it's still not likely.

The Saints will likely lose safety Kenny Vaccaro to free agency, and they do use a lot of three-safety sets, but Mathieu may be a little too rich for their taste, especially considering the team already has Marcus Williams and Vonn Bell at the position.
