And with free agency starting Wednesday, the Chiefs are expected to sign former Houston Texans safety Tryann Mathieu to sign a three-year, $42 million contract and former Cowboys linebacker Damien Wilson to a two-year, $5.6 million deal, reports say. Of the Chiefs' last 34 games, counting the playoffs, Berry participated in just three. Many took to Twitter to share their thoughts, and at least one teammate did as well. As a rookie he made the Pro Bowl for the first of what would be five times.
Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said in a statement that Berry has been a tremendous leader for their football team and an inspiration to so many fans over the years. "Knowing what Eric has meant to this organization and this city made this an incredibly hard decision". When healthy, Berry is peerless at his position and, if not for injury, it was likely that the Hall of Fame would come calling one day in Canton, Ohio, As it stands, Berry will undoubtedly enter the Chiefs Hall of Fame one day when he decides to end his career. Berry played a single game in 2017 before tearing his Achilles tendon, forcing him to miss the rest of the season.
"We sincerely appreciate all that he has meant to the Chiefs, Hunt said. He will always be an important part of our Chiefs family, and we wish him nothing but the best in the future".
The release of Berry is a post-June 1st designation. "We wish him nothing but the best".
The four were pillars for Kansas City during its renaissance under coach Andy Reid. "Seeing his passion and watching his love for the game has been truly remarkable".
While finances were a major consideration in the Chiefs' recent moves, including the trade of top pass rusher Dee Ford to San Francisco, so has the way the roster had been constructed.
