The plan is to extend safety Tyrann Mathieu at some point. That’s never been a question with the Cardinals or General Manager Steve Keim. But that doesn’t mean it will necessarily get done anytime soon either, Keim said at the NFL Scouting combine Wednesday.
“We’ve made our goal clear, which is to re-sign him to a long-term deal,” Keim said. “Yet at the same time, there are always obstacles in negotiations so we’ll see where it goes.”
Mathieu still is under contract through 2016. He is coming off a second ACL tear. More importantly right now, the Cardinals and Keim have a lot on their plate in terms of working not only with draft prep but also with the free agent class — both the Cardinals’ own and those from other teams the Cards will be chasing — that is upcoming. Mathieu is important, but he’s not going to be the top priority here in February.
