Tyrann Mathieu won’t miss facing Russell Wilson

With safety Tyrann Mathieu exiting the NFC West and joining the AFC South, he’ll swap facing the 49ers, Rams, and Seahawks twice per year for seeing the Colts, Jaguars, and Titans two times per season.

So which player from the NFC West will Tyrann Mathieu least miss facing?

It’s likely no coincidence that Seattle’s dramatic roster overhaul includes guys who may not have been all in with the idea that it’s Wilson’s team. From the retirement of Marshawn Lynch New York Yankees Cheap Jersey to the trade of Michael Bennett to the release of Richard Sherman to the looming trade (possibly) of Earl Thomas, the Seahawks are choosing Wilson, and they’ll be rebuilding the roster around him with guys who will walk through the door realizing that it’s Wilson’s team, and that the team will go as far moving forward as Wilson can take them.

“I’m ready to get back to my dominant play,” Wilkerson said, via Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. “I know what type of player I’m capable of being, and I’m just ready to do it at a new place, a new organization and a new group of guys. I’m just really excited about the things to come this year.

“I’m capable of being a dominant player that those years have shown, the stats have shown.”

Those stats showed particularly impressive seasons in 2013 and 2015. Wilkerson recorded 10.5 sacks in 2013 and posted a career-high 12 sacks in 2015. That production slipped the last two years with just 3.5 and 4.5 sacks, respectively. Wilkerson was also benched for the final three games of the season for reportedly showing up late.

Despite taking other visits after the Jets cut him earlier this Hockey Jerseys Cheap month, Wilkerson elected on a reunion with former Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine in Green Bay.
