Arizona Cardinals defensive back Tyrann Mathieu has signed with Creative Artist Agency’s football division. Mathieu played his college ball at LSU prior to being a third round pick (No. 69 overall) by the Cardinals. He has rebounded well from a scrutinized college career that included Mathieu being kicked off the LSU team for violating team rules.
Excited to welcome @AZCardinals Tyrann Mathieu @Mathieu_Era to the CAA Family!

Mathieu was formerly represented by football agent Pat Lawlor, but decided to move on to new representation on July 16.
“Before Patrick let me go (Patrick and I) had no issues whatsoever,” Lawlor said to Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com. “Tyrann, same thing. Not one thing. Not one argument. Not one issue came up. It’s likely other agents are in his face, just constantly pounding. He’s a high-profile player. That’s the nature of the game.”
The Patrick that “let Lawlor go” is Patrick Peterson, who is also on the Arizona Cardinals and recently signed a 5-year, $70 million extension along with an agreement to endorse Under Armour.
Mathieu is also represented by EAG Sports Management for off-field matters including marketing and public relations.
