Tyrann Mathieu took college football by storm two years ago, and was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in this year’s NFL draft. Clearly, the guy can play football.
What you probably didn’t know though was that the Honey Badger can play some basketball too.

Like several NFL teams, the Arizona Cardinals have a number of question marks heading into training camp, but a new one has appeared to have popped up out of nowhere.
The Arizona Cardinals have waived line backer Tim Fugger out of Vanderbilt. He has spent only one season in the NFL so far, getting his name at the combine for his intangibles. He will look to hook on somewhere else.
