KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Chiefs fans are braving the cold and camped out overnight for a Tyrann Mathieu autograph.

As of sunrise Tuesday, the line was more than 300 people long, full of Honey Badger fans, outside the Dick's Sporting Goods in Zona Rosa. They're all waiting for wristbands for an autograph session.

The company will give out 225 wristbands, but previous autograph sessions with Chris Jones, Damarcus Robinson and Frank Clark have all had overflow lines that people could wait in and get autographs if the players felt like staying.

Dick's will pass those out at 9 a.m., and Mathieu will be there at 7:30 p.m.

Mathieu will sign any item purchased in-store the day of the event or a free player card will be provided for autograph if needed, but no outside items are allowed.
