Squeezed by the salary cap, the Cardinals released Mathieu in March, and he signed a one-year deal with the Texans two days later. The “Honey Badger” is a playmaker who had 41 pass breakups and 11 interceptions during his five years in Arizona. But the 5-9, 186-pound Mathieu has had trouble staying healthy. He’s torn the ACLs in both knees and has also lost time to shoulder and thumb injuries. Mathieu did manage to play a full, 16-game season last year, and he finished with 78 tackles.
