Tyrann Mathieu makes generous $1 million donation to LSU

Arizona Cardinals defensive back Tyrann Mathieu has made a sizable donation to the university that helped make him a household name. Of course, that name was “The Honey Badger,” Mathieu’s nickname during his time at LSU.

Things didn’t end well at LSU for Mathieu and he was eventually dismissed from the program over violations stemming from multiple failed drug tests. Mathieu doesn’t seem to be too sour over it though, as his $1 million dollar donation to his former college came in advance of the schools matchup against Alabama.

The donation will be applied toward renovations the university has planned for its football operations building.

One. Million. Dollars.

Mathieu, who had to take time off due to his violations, and who saw his stock fall in the NFL draft as a result of them, is now living large in Arizona. He recently signed a five-year, $62.5 million dollar contract extension with the team who took a gamble on him in the draft.
