Chiefs Release Veteran S Eric Berry After Nine Seasons

The Eric Berry era is over in Kansas City.

The Kansas City Chiefs began free agency Wednesday by cutting one of their most popular players in strong safety Eric Berry, who was a dynamic presence when he was healthy but had missed significant time throughout his career.

His teammate, Jeff Allen, wrote on Twitter, "I don't think I've ever played with someone that loves the game of football as much as Eric Berry. He will always be an important part of our Chiefs family, and we wish him nothing but the best in the future".

Renowned F1 director Charlie Whiting dies
FIA president Jean Todt said in a statement: "It is with huge sadness that I learned of Charlie's sudden passing". Whiting began his F1 career in 1977 working for the Hesketh team, before joining Brahbam in the 1980s.

They also have agreed to a three-year contract with former Texans safety Tyrann Mathieu. The turnaround for the team was immediate, going 10-6 that season to win the AFC West, and the team made the playoffs for the first time since 2006. He suffered a torn ACL in the team's opener and missed the entire year.

Berry, 30, spent nine seasons in Kansas City after being drafted by the Chiefs with the fifth-overall pick in the 2010 draft. Sadly, his career was halted when he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma back in December of 2014.

Prior to returning in Week 15, Berry hadn't played since Week 1 of 2017 following a season-ending Achilles injury.

Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode Runtimes Confirmed By HBO
This is the biggest show in terms of scale we've ever seen, and in terms of fandom, possibly the biggest show ever, period. Well, it turns out that isn't quite the case - but there will be a fair few longer episodes in Game Of Thrones' final run.

The Atlanta native also amassed 77 tackles with a forced fumble a returned a two-point conversion interception for the game-winning points in a homecoming game against the Falcons.

It will be intriguing to see what kind of interest Berry generates on the open market, especially considering the veteran safety was limited to four total games over the past two seasons combined.

The move clears $9.55 million from the salary cap this season, but the Chiefs won't see the bulk of that savings until June 2 under National Football League collective bargaining rules. The Chiefs would have owed Berry $7.25 million if he had been kept on the roster until Friday.
