(NEW YORK) — The Arizona Cardinals signed their third round draft pick Tyrann Mathieu to a four-year contract Thursday.
“I never doubted it,” Mathieu said on the team’s website when talking about signing an NFL contract. “I knew it was a long shot and it would be a process, but to finally sit down and sign my name on the dotted line means a lot to me.”
League sources told ESPN’s Ed Werder that Mathieu will receive a $662,500 guarenteed signing bonus.
A source of ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter said Mathieu will receive $265,000 upfront with the rest of the money coming through annual roster bonuses.
Mathieu becomes the sixth of the Cardinals nine draft picks to sign.
