FAIRHOPE, Ala. - Former LSU star Tyrann Mathieu is at the Senior Bowl and hopes to meet with NFL coaches and executives.
He says his ambitions haven't changed even if his days as the "Honey Badger" ended with his college career. The 2011 Heisman Trophy finalist watched ex-teammate Lavar Edwards and the rest of the Senior Bowl's South team practice on Monday.
Mathieu says he still feels he'll be a Pro Bowler but knows he'll face tough questions from NFL teams. He says recent months have been about "getting a grip on myself mentally, emotionally and spiritually."
Mathieu was dismissed from the LSU team last August for failing a drug test. He was arrested in late October along with three other former LSU players after police said they found marijuana at Mathieu's apartment.
