The Tyrann Mathieu saga continues.  ESPN is reporting that the “Honey Badger” Tyrann Mathieu says he will enter into the NFL Draft in 2013 instead of trying to return back to LSU next year. 

Former LSU defensive back Tyrann Mathieu announced Thursday he is entering the next NFL draft.

In a statement announcing his decision, Mathieu said, “it is time for me to move forward.”

Mathieu thanked his parents and coach Les Miles in his statement, as well as his former LSU teammates.

“I am sorry that I was not able to complete my journey at LSU, but I will always support LSU in any way I can. To my teammates, you are my brothers. You have kept me going. I will do my best to make you all proud of me,” he said.

Mathieu, known as the “Honey Badger,” was a Heisman Trophy finalist known for his knack for making plays last year. But the 20-year-old Mathieu was suspended for this season due to a substance abuse issue he has continued to work on.

Mathieu was arrested last month on a possession of marijuana charge. He also was dismissed from the football team in August for failing a drug test and entered a treatment program run by former NBA player John Lucas.

Instead of transferring to another lower-division school to play this season, Mathieu re-enrolled at LSU but is not playing football.
