In just three short years, All-Pro safety Tyrann Mathieu endeared himself to the Kansas City Chiefs faithful.

Unfortunately, the free agent's time in Kansas City seems to have come to an end. The Chiefs added Justin Reid to the secondary as Mathieu continues shopping services around the league.

With a Super Bowl title in hand, the impact of leaving Kansas City is not held lightly by 'The Honey Badger'. Mathieu recently discussed his free agency with Sam McDowell of the Kansas City Star, and shared a heartfelt reaction to the end of his Chiefs' tenure.

Mathieu said that he feels "heartbroken" considering the Chiefs never offered him an opportunity to return. He even doubled down, indicating he "would have likely accepted the same offer" Kansas City gave to Reid.

At the end of the day, football is a business. But that doesn't stop Mathieu's impending departure from being a bittersweet moment for Chiefs fans.

Fortunately, Reid's addition brings a similar level of ballhawking efforts from the safety position. The four-year former Houston Texan tallied seven interceptions across 53 starts, including a pair of seasons with 80+ tackles.

As it stands, the Chiefs enter the 2022 NFL season at +950 in Super Bowl Odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
