The people spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because the deal cannot become official until Wednesday, when the new league year begins and free agents can sign contracts.

The Houston Texans offered safety Tyrann Mathieu a long-term deal worth more than $9.5 million annually, sources told Albert Breer of The MMQB.

The Chiefs may pair Mathieu at safety with Berry, if he's healthy enough to play.

On Monday, Yahoo! Sports' Terez Paylor, ESPN's Adam Schefter and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the Kansas City Chiefs were signing former Texans safety Tyrann Mathieu.

Mathieu, who racked up 70 tackles, three sacks and two interceptions in his lone season with Houston, gives the Chiefs an elite defender in the middle of the field - something the team lacked in the 2018 season.

Mathieu, 26, was selected by the Cardinals in the third-round of the 2013 draft. He's primarily played free safety, but did appear at corner last season for the Texans.

Meanwhile, the Chiefs are down one starting offensive lineman. Reiter started four games in the 2018 season when a concussion sidelined Morse for five games. He hit the open market and signed a one-year deal with the Texans.

Despite missing at least two games in each of his first four National Football League seasons, Mathieu has played all 16 games in each of his last two.

Yes, the Chiefs - who aren't exactly flush with cap space, even after releasing Justin Houston - are paying quite a pretty penny to land the services of Mathieu. Foles had been in Philadelphia, where he helped the Eagles to their Super Bowl LII win.
