Chiefs release veteran safety Eric Berry after nine seasons with the team

Chiefs release veteran safety Eric Berry after nine seasons with the team

"He's a special person, and we wish him the best as his career moves forward". "He will always be an important part of our Chiefs family, and we wish him nothing but the best in the future".

Berry missed most of last season with the Chiefs as he recovered from injuries.

The Chiefs have already moved on from several high-priced veterans, cutting Justin Houston and trading fellow linebacker Dee Ford to San Francisco.

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 tore his ACL in the first quarter of the opener, ending his season. Multiple outlets are reporting the five-time Pro Bowler is being designated as a post-June 1 cut, which would save the Chiefs around $9.5 million in salary cap space this year and $5.5 million next year.

The Chiefs selected Berry in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft out of Tennessee and he quickly established himself as one of the league's premier safeties. That was the first of four seasons in which Berry missed nearly an entire season.

Berry also missed 10 games during the 2014 season when he was diagnosed with cancer, but he became a motivation to many when he concluded treatment and was back on the field the following summer. Berry stockpiled 87 tackles, six quarterback hits and four interceptions on his way to a Pro Bowl rookie season. He played in just three games in 2018 because of an ailing heel. He has participated in only three of the Chiefs' last 34 contests, including the postseason.
