Report: Arizona Cardinals ask Tyrann Mathieu to take a pay cut
The Cardinals asked safety Tyrann Mathieu to take a pay cut on Thursday, Mathieu said during a visit to the NFL Network.
The news, reported by NFL.com, was expected. If Mathieu is on the Cardinals roster on Wednesday, the first day of the league year, $18.75 million of his contract becomes guaranteed.
Mathieu said he is open to restructuring the contract, but that's not necessarily the same as being open to a pay cut.
“But taking money out of my pocket, I don't like how that feels,” he said, according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.
