The contract will not become official until the beginning of the new league year at 3 p.m.

With Morse's departure, the Chiefs will likely turn to Austin Reiter as their starting center. Known for his aggressiveness, Veach spent most of Monday convincing Mathieu to leave the contending Houston Texans to join the Super Bowl-chasing Chiefs.

The former LSU Tiger said it was "extremely important" for him to remain with the Texans at the conclusion of the 2018 season. It also gives the Chiefs a quick evaluation period on a good player, plus an instant injection of energy and improvisation in the secondary. He only played seven games in 2017 as he battled an ongoing foot injury, and he finished that season on injured reserve.
