"Definitely gained some of my confidence back, so now I have an offseason to where I strictly focus on getting better, and so I'm thankful for that".

Arizona Cardinals free safety Tyrann Mathieu (32) is pulled away from San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Trent Taylor (81) after a tackle during the first half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Oct. 1, 2017, in Glendale, Ariz. However, two ACL tears in five years may give teams some pause, especially given his declining coverage grade since his peak 2015 season.

"Going into my first draft as a general manager, there's no way that I thought a player like Tyrann Mathieu should get a second chance", Keim said. With an absurd $3.5 million contract for next season, it's worth wondering why Shepard even remains on the roster after his disappointing 2017 season. Mathieu said last week the Cards had asked him to take a pay cut. In two years, Mathieu had 133 tackles, 16 pass deflections, 11 forced fumbles, nine pass deflections, six sacks, four interceptions, two defensive touchdowns and added two punt return touchdowns.

Truth be told, the reality that his circumstances could change started to hit the 25-year-old Mathieu during the early stages of last season. Basically, despite previous reports stating the safety might end up staying in Arizona, the franchise preferred to save some loot by releasing him. That brings us back to his contract, which featured figures that required Arizona to take a leap of faith and ultimately challenged Mathieu's value.
