The nickname has not changed, Cards hope Mathieu has

Posted: Updated:

The shout comes from the crowd, "Go Honey Badger."           

It's a nickname Tyrann Mathieu wanted to leave behind, a reminder of the sorry premature end to his college career as he looks to make it in the NFL.           

But now he realizes it's a moniker he can't kick, and he's decided to -- in his words - 'just go with it" for now.           

It's so far, so good a few days into his first NFL training camp. The Cardinals are helping the likable, diminutive defensive back.           

Meanwhile, Mathieu is flying all over the field, trying to make the kind of plays that made him a sensation before everything fell apart in Baton Rouge.
