Chiefs release safety Eric Berry

Chiefs release safety Eric Berry

"I'd like to thank Eric for his contributions to our team and the Kansas City community over the last nine years", Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid said in a release. He was also given a huge extension with the Chiefs in 2017, but a torn Achilles shut that season quickly.

"We continually evaluate every aspect of our football team and we came to the decision that it was in our best interest to release Eric", Chiefs general manager Brett Veach said in a release. Berry was once a pillar of the Kansas City defense alongside Derrick Johnson, Tamba Hali, and Justin Houston. He tore his ACL in the first quarter of the opener, ending his season.

He earned five trips to the Pro Bowl in his time with the Chiefs. Sadly, his career was halted when he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma back in December of 2014. The 6-foot, 210-pounder, who was originally the fifth pick in the 2010 National Football League draft out of Tennessee, has been named All-Pro three times and to the Pro Bowl five times during his nine-year tenure with the team. He worked out during the offseason despite undergoing chemotherapy treatments. But a mysterious heel injury popped up that kept Berry off the field until Week 15 against the Chargers.

Berry was able to overcome cancer and was even named the 2015 Comeback Player of the Year. He played in 89 games from 2010 to 2018, wracking up 440 tackles, 14 interceptions and 51 passes defended.

The greatest moment of Eric Berry's storied tenure as a Chief happened prior to kickoff in a playoff game the Chiefs ultimately lost.
