METAIRIE, La. It was worth the wait!.
He was not just expressing hope for the “perfect” match with his hometown, but also the weeks of free agency.. The veteran of 10 years in the field insists Wednesday that he was “manifesting” this for the past few years while thriving with his family. .
“This is where I wanted to be.” Mathieu stated that this was the place that he always wanted to go.
Mathieu explained, “From there it just about everything coming together and aligning.” “But this has been happening for quite some time. It means a lot just to be given this chance.”
I WISH MY GRANDMA COULD SEE THIS

Mathieu only implied that Mathieu wanted to prove other teams wrong by saying, “As good a football player I think I am, maybe not good enough. So that's what keeps me motivated.”
Mathieu, who is 30 years old on May 13, was mentioned by a reporter. He laughed and said, “You said 30 like that?s old.” I'm just warming up.”
Mathieu expressed his excitement to be part of a Saints team under the new coach Dennis Allen. Allen is someone Mathieu had admired for many years. Mathieu is also excited to make an impact on the “community that I grew-up in.”
Saints' fans feel the same way, with his jersey in high demand.
A time was when the LSU and St. Augustine High School stars said that leaving Southern Louisiana was his best option.
Heisman Trophy finalist, who was kicked out of the LSU team due to multiple failed drug tests in 2012, was arrested for marijuana possession.He was able to move on from negative influences and focus on his maturing and reviving football career.
Mathieu made a public statement in 2016 after Will Smith, an ex-Saints star, was shot and killed. Later, Mathieu explained that his comments were motivated by his grief over the loss of loved ones.
Mathieu returned to host a youth camp in 2016, and has continued hosting camps since. He has also been returning to Baton Rouge in recent years as a strong supporter of LSU.
Mathieu joked Wednesday that “To be completely honest, I've had a long career in the NFL thing.” “When I realized that the Saints wanted me and I was obviously interested in them, it was an opportunity I couldn't pass up.
“New Orleans is a great city, it has always been a great town. I think 10 years ago, when my family was in New Orleans, I felt that it was important to me to remove myself from certain situations and environments. This allowed me to work on myself, and allow myself to become responsible again and to be the best version of myself. It's been an amazing process.
“I am surrounded by great people who support and encourage me. This opportunity wouldn't have been possible without them and my willingness to just do the right things. Like I said, I'm grateful to have this chance and to be in the community to help these kids be better and give them hope. It's that, I believe.
