Several people in the media and some associated with the NFLPA disputed such a claim, and late last night Mathieu’s agent Pat Lawlor dismissed it entirely, when he told Ian Rapoport that such a claim was “ridiculous.”
Pat Lawlor, Tyrann Mathieu’s agent, on report of no guaranteed $$: “Ridiculous. Not gonna happen. We had no contract discussion with them”Lawlor confirmed that Mathieu has no problem being subjected to weekly drug tests, and they understand that the Cardinals would like a contract that protects the franchise in case of a slip up by Mathieu.
