Let's take a look at the long list of players who tried to recruit the Honey Badger and let's start with the Chargers.

Arizona Cardinals free safety Tyrann Mathieu (32) celebrates his interception against the Chicago Bears during the first half of a preseason NFL football game, Saturday, Aug. 19, 2017, in Glendale, Ariz.

Despite his desire to remain with the team, a new agreement could not be reached.

Mathieu, 25, has been a real asset to the Cardinals' defense over the last few years. Mathieu was released by the Cardinals after refusing to take a pay cut this offseason.

He played just two years of his five years, $62.5 million extension.

Mathieu isn't without red flags, and he'll have far more likely landing spots, but a new day has dawned, and the Packers can't be ruled out for anyone.

Mathieu was used mostly as a free safety in Arizona, but is about as versatile as modern defensive backs come.

Over five seasons in Arizona, Mathieu delivered 308 tackles, four sacks, 41 passes defended, 11 interceptions and four forced fumbles. "Taking money out of my pocket, I don't like how that feels", Mathieu reportedly said last week.

Mathieu suffered a season-ending knee injury late in the 2013 season.

Mathieu during his five seasons as a Cardinal was ubiquitous in the Phoenix community.

He's been a model citizen since entering the National Football League; beloved by teammates, who were devastated by his torn ACL late in the 2015 season, and fans. A constant presence at charity events, Mathieu was also known to pass out turkeys to those in need during the Thanksgiving holiday and come Christmas time, Mathieu made door-to-door stops in person bearing presents to underprivileged children. The New York Giants are considered a team to "keep an eye on" as the Honey Badger tests the free agent market, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
