Chiefs Release Veteran S Eric Berry After Nine Seasons

According to New York Giants beat writer Art Stapleton, buzz has been circulating that the team could have designs on Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry this offseason. Given all things considered, Berry likely wouldn't command much from a financial standpoint, and if he stays healthy, he could provide a boost to a Cowboys defense that was fairly strong last season.

Berry, 30, has played in just three regular season games over the past two years while dealing with fallout from a ruptured achilles he suffered in the 2017 season-opener. The veteran All-Pro played in 89 games (87 starts) in his nine seasons with the Chiefs. "We wish him nothing but the best".

"We sincerely appreciate all that he has meant to the Chiefs, Hunt said".

However, he aggravated the injury and missed the team's regular-season finale before playing against the Patriots in the AFC championship.

His release comes with a post-June 1 designation, meaning the Chiefs take on $6.5 million in dead money this season and $8 million next season.

While Microsoft is interested in bringing Xbox Live integration to PS4 games as well, Sony is not really welcoming of this.

Berry hasn't been able to catch a break for the bulk of his National Football League career. "He will always be an important part of our Chiefs family, and we wish him nothing but the best in the future".

Following the 2015 season, Berry was named the AP Comeback Player of the Year Award and received the Ed Block Courage Award after overcoming Hodgkin's lymphoma.

He finishes his nine-year tenure in Kansas City with 440 tackles, 5.5 sacks, 14 interceptions (five returned for touchdowns), three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

"Seeing his passion and watching his love for the game has been truly remarkable", Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid said.
