Tyrann Mathieu Says He Knows The ‘Hating Ass Coward’ Who Gunned Down New Orleans Saints’ Will Smith



The sports world was shocked by the news of New Orleans Saints’ defensive end Will Smith being gunned down in a horrific scene following a fender bender in New Orleans the other night, and Arizona Cardinals defensive back Tyrann Mathieu is one player who has voiced his support.

Mathieu, who is from New Orleans and played for the LSU Tigers, tweeted out that he knows the man who allegedly murdered Smith, calling him “a hating ass coward,” among other things.

The man arrested and charged with second-degree murder is 28-year-old Cardell Hayes, who was a former prep school star in Louisiana, and Mathieu made it appear as if the two had crossed paths a handful of times during their early football careers.

Smith is survived by his three children and wife, who was also shot by Hayes during the incident, so thoughts with the entire family.
