Watch: Tyrann Mathieu sets online story straight on Saints signing, Chiefs exit, more

By , WWL Radio Sports

Tyrann Mathieu likely isn't the only pro athlete who wanted to make an edit on their own WikiPedia entry, but the new Saints safety is one of the few to actually do it.

Well, in a manner of speaking. The edits Mathieu made on his own entry don't appear to have stuck, but he made them nonetheless as part of a GQ interview that went across a variety of social media outlets to answer questions as himself.

Mathieu answered a host of key questions, such as why he ran track in high school (grades, and one of his teachers was a coach), his Disney World advice, tattoo plans and more. But he also went in-depth on how he arrived as a member of the Saints. He said he in New Orleans visiting family members. The Saints found out and asked him to come in for a visit, and weeks later he was signing with his hometown team.

"Not every kid can say they walked in The Saints facility, so for me, that was something I always wanted to do," Mathieu said in the video. "And so a couple weeks after that visit, you know, they offered me a contract, and now man, it's all about bringing a championship to New Orleans now."

Mathieu went across Wikipedia, Instagram, Reddit, Youtube and even TikTok, creating accounts and answering existing questions as himself. The Twitter account he created only has 2 followers at the time of this post.

The only tweet from the account is an explanation of why he believes he's a Chiefs hall-of-famer, responding to a Twitter poll asking exactly that question.

Mathieu is one of several current and former athletes to take part in the online GQ series titled "Actually Me," including NBA superstar Stephen Curry, soccer superstar Mo Salah and many others.

The Saints safety will be getting back on his field with his new team over the next few weeks, whether that's at the third and final OTAs session this week or at the team's mandatory minicamp held June 14-16.
