Bill Polian Rips Tyrann Mathieu, Calls Honey Badger "A Poor Teammate"

Former NFL general manager and current ESPN analyst Bill Polian destroyed Tyrann Mathieu today, calling the prospect a "poor teammate and a poor risk," and claiming were he still in charge of drafting for a pro team that he'd "take him off our board."

When asked if drafting the Honey Badger was worth the risk, Polian highlighted first Mathieu's deficiencies on the field before launching into an attack on the former LSU player's off-field struggles. Polian, indeed, said he would not select Mathieu in any round or even as an undrafted free agent, calling attention to Mathieu's "irresponsibility and disrespect for his teammates." [ESPN]
