In this edition of ESPN Cover Story, Kansas City Chiefs MVP Tyrann Mathieu reveals how he became one of the NFL’s most respected leaders-both on and off the field. In a conversation with The Undefeated’s Domonique Foxworth, Mathieu opens up about why this election will be his first time voting, why he’s committed to encouraging others to join him, and why this season he feels “centered more than any other time in my life.”

  • I wished my Jaguars would have drafted this dude when they had the chance. I knew this dude was going to be special when I saw how he played at LSU. Glad to see him shine, and also be a good man. Props to Honey Badger.

  • Anytime they say "tested positive for Marijuana" and "Arrested for Marijuana" i can't help but roll my eyes. Kicking young men off teams and throwing them in jail for a plant that's legal is 14 states and decriminalized in a dozen more. Such a joke.

  • He's just a football player. This glorification is so bizarre. The photo shoot, Hans Zimmer-esque music... poor kid doesn't realize that in just a few more years, or if he busted a knee, he wouldn't be thought about by fans, the team owner, ESPN, etc. Athletes, especially young ones, are just that.
