There are some new developments in the Tyrann Mathieu saga.
Mathieu, the former Heisman finalist and LSU football star, is reportedly going to enter into a drug rehab facility. He will do this instead of transferring to another school to play football this season.
Mathieu reportedly made this decision with the assistance of his parents. This is an unexpected move that could help him turn his life around with the reported three failed drug tests in the past three years that caused him to be dismissed from the Louisiana State football team.
He is expected to enter the rehab in House and will be mentored on a daily basis by former NBA player John Lucas.
His adoptive father, Tyrone, called the decision a mature decision. This move will also affect his 2013 draft stock, as sitting out the upcoming season will affect his draft value.
It is also not clear if Mathieu was ruled eligible to play this season prior to being kicked off the football team. If he failed two drug tests in one calendar year, he would not be eligible to play.
Last season, he was named the MVP of the football team. He played in 13 games, including the 21-0 loss to Alabama in the National Championship game.
He had 76 tackles last season, which was tied with Eric Reid for the team lead. He also had 7.5 tackles for a loss and 1.5 sacks. He also had 2 interceptions and five fumble recoveries.
