Honey Badger’s Father — Tyrann Won’t Play Football This Season
So here is the Honey Badger Tyrann Mathieu's journey in a nutshell from the past two weeks. Tyrann released from LSU on Friday August 10th then talks with the McNeese Cowboys that Friday night. The national media then starts speculating that Tyrann will go back to LSU.
Then last Friday August 17th, it was announced that Tyrann Mathieu had entered rehab in Houston, Texas. Now a report is out that the Honey Badger will NOT play football at all this season.
Tyrann Mathieu will not play football this season and continues to focus on working on himself, his adoptive father Tyrone told ESPN's Joe Schad on Thursday.
Tyrone Mathieu said last week that that the 20-year-old cornerback and punt returner known as the "Honey Badger" has been at the Right Step recovery center and is being counseled by former NBA player John Lucas. Lucas battled substance abuse during his pro career and now mentors others who have dependency issues.
"Tyrann is focused on addressing his issues with Mr. Lucas," Tyrone told Schad. "(Lucas') story speaks for itself. He can help Tyrann and he can help our family.""Tyrann is working on discipline, maturity and character," Mathieu said. "He's making life adjustments."
