That tweet can mean many things, but it could be correlated to his contract negotiations for an extension in KC that Veach has mentioned is a priority this offseason. It could be related to a relationship, family member, bowling league or wing eating contest.

Itís plausible that the tweet is a public response to the team not wanting to pay a massive AAV to re-sign Tyrann and using other free agent and draft options as reasons they donít NEED to re-sign him (this is business, nothing more) to try to drive down the price.

Letís talk about it...

Some pros of extending his contract:

Clears a nice chunk of cap space this offseason.
Keeps a leader in the locker room as well as in the secondary.
Continues to provide the defense with a guy that consistently takes the ball away.


Some cons to an extension for Tyrann:

Once he loses a step, heís not going to be nearly as effective at his size, heís already not a burner. He will still be good due to prep snd instincts, but will be beaten more once he loses a step.
Any extension would start after he turns 30. Heís currently signed through age 29 this year.
Judging from his last contract negotiation with us, he wants top of the market money. Most likely a 3 year extension. Something close to 3/48. If structured right, Iíd extend him for 3 years...even at that price. The structure would need to give the team options if he falls off.

I'm torn on the thought of an extension. Hes a leader and a great guy and player, but weve been burned before. Probably depends on the numbers for me.

He’s the heartbeat of the team in ways that not even Mahomes is.

You extend him, and you do it this offseason.

Honey Badger literally posts shit like this all the time and Veach said Mathieu will get done this offseason. Called him the same importance as Mahomes in getting an extension done

That’s no slight on Mahomes at all, but it does show the extraordinary leadership that may truly be unparalleled in Chiefs history. He’s that special of a guy.

And he backs it up on the field. He was a legit DPOY contender that year as well.

We’re also paying Hill next offseason, so we want to stagger the first year hits of Mathieu and Hill in succeasive years rather than having them hit at the same time.

It all matters on how well he can maintain his speed and quickness. When those go a secondary player usually drops off a cliff. The 1st half of the year Mathieu seemed to be a little off. Then he picked it back up in the 2nd half. I dunno if we have much of a choice about an extension. We need a replacement if we are going to let him walk. We don't have that now.
