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.

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.
