Tyrann Mathieu Bringing Back the "Honey Badger" Nickname


We knew that Arizona Cardinals S Tyrann Mathieu would not be able to o long without using the nickname Honey Badger. As long as he made plays on the field, we knew that the name would come back.

With the issues that he had in college for failing multiple drug tests, Mathieu wanted to ditch the nickname for a little bit. He was open to bringing it back and it looks like he brought it all the way back with this tweet from today:

The Honey Badger don’t care. Tyrann Mathieu has been playing well in the secondary for the Cardinals. He has 40 tackles this year and has an interception and has forced a fumble. The Honey Badger is back.

What the heck is a javelina you ask….well let’s just jump on the youtube for some answers to that one:
