The Texans have added another playmaker for their star-studded defense.

Houston has signed former Cardinals defensive back Tyrann Mathieu, the team announced Friday night. The deal is for one year at $7 million, reports NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, via a source informed of the situation.

Mathieu, the former LSU and St. Augustine High standout, was released Wednesday by the Cardinals after balking at the idea of a pay cut from the $19 million he was due to collect under a five-year, $62.5 million contract signed in 2016.
