According to the National Football Post, Deion Sanders was doing his best to sell Tyrann Mathieu to NFL teams at the scouting combine back in February.
Tyrann Mathieu should send Deion Sanders a thank you card. One of the reasons Mathieu’s draft stock rebounded is Sanders was pushing him hard. It started at the combine, where Prime Time sought out team executives with the intent of selling the Honey Badger. He was going from suite to suite during workouts at Lucas Oil Field, even talking to team owners and vouching for the Badger’s character.
As they say, it only takes one team to all in love with a player and draft him. The Cardinals were this team and now that Mathieu has his shot he better not mess it up.
