Chiefs Cut Eric Berry

We knew it had to happen unfortunately. Good Luck EB.

This makes me terribly sad, but I suspected it was going to happen when he opted not to have surgery. He’s been my favorite Chief for years. I bought his jersey right after he was drafted and wore it for every game until he came back from his cancer. I was able to get his autograph on it at training camp that year and immediately had it framed. He looked brilliant in the Pats game in 2017 and seeing him go down with the ruptured Achilles was heartbreaking. Last season was terribly frustrating, largely because of the day-to-day-to-day-to-day ad infinitum. For his sake I hope he can play at a high level again–in the NFC. It would be emotionally easier if he can’t, but wishing for that would make me a terrible person, wouldn’t it?

I wouldn’t feel too bad. I just remember that we lost the 3 games he played in the last 2 years. You tell me what his impact on the defense is. When Sorenson has a more notable season than you, then it’s probably about time for you to go.

I said no such thing. Every position is important in the wins and losses of a team game. Y’all can be mad and downvote all you want. I didn’t attack his character, but it’s a pretty bad showing, as far as the physicality of playmaking is concerned, when you LITTERALY don’t make an impact of any game you started in. It was only a half joke about losing the games he played in. I know he’s a locker room leader. I know the respect he deserves in his personal life AND on the field. But whatever impact and influence he had on the defense and whatever respect those men gave him the FACTS are that what actually happened is that our defense lost games because they were close to last in the league.

Do what you want. 👋

I just offered Terez $20 to ask Reid Eric Berry’s status on opening day.
We’ll see how this plays out

When they said they were remaking the defense, they sure weren’t kidding.

Seeing a lot of photos and reading a lot anecdotes of Berry. Shit’s getting heavy. I think of all the Chiefs’ greats in the past who’ve been denied a ring because we didn’t have it where it counted most. I hope Berry is the last one to bear this indignity.

We’ve seen a lot of great players playing great football in KC. Unfortunately for those past legends, the best is yet to come. It’s a damn shame they can’t enjoy the ride with all of us.

Agreed. That’s the hardest part for me.

Apparently golden goblets are able to contain BHQV without damage,
good to know.

That’s the real reason it’s so precious; it can successfully hold BHQV.

Turning over the locker room, closing the book on the Sutton Era in KC.

It’s gonna be interesting to see who steps up as a defensive leader in the locker now with the 2 biggest gone.

The Pioli era is officially done in KC.

Everything I’ve read about Honey Badger says he’s a leader and his mentality is a big reason he was the Chiefs’ number one FA priority (per Nate Taylor).

Tarkus

Yeah, he established himself a leader on the Texans in his only year there.

If Berry plays all hear I’m going to hate this release. Just not worth it. On the record so I’m not called a Chiefs loyalist. If he doesn’t and/or the bone spur takes him back out, this will be acceptable.

It’ll be hard to count on him playing after waiting a full season for the inflammation to subside. It will really suck to see him being effective for another team.

This makes me sad ……..

Business decision or not, I dont like EB not being a Chief any longer.

I’m not mad and don’t blame or chastise as this most likely had to be done … EB is a cap casualty.

I thought of EB as the Superman version of invincible … I guess he was just the Achilles version of invincible.

The last few days have been a roller coaster, so i hope this is the last of Dorsey’s shitty contracts we have to bow out of.

I hope the up thats coming is a Ramsey or Peterson signing.

Didn’t imagine that all three of Dee-Houston-Berry would be gone in the same offseason. I get it, but it’s a lot. Need to nab another of these FA safeties and probably a CB.

Tony Sommer

At least with Berry we’re not losing much production from last year.

and we get to miss the (imo likely) possibility that Berry comes back and we all see that injuries and age have sapped his ability to be special. I was dreading a past-his-prime Berry starting a very unimpressive 16 games. I want to remember him as a transcendent talent, not as a has-been. Last year was tough enough.

If it was time, it was time. Hell of a cap hit. I’m not sure if it’s better they Post 6.1 him or not, but it’s done now. The ONLY reason to do it is because you need the cap space this year, for something else. Wonder what that’ll be?

Looking at it in the best way I possibly can. This move makes the defense no worse than it was the last two years.
I’m probably going to get ripped for that comment, but it’s the truth.
EB was always one of my favorite players, when my Mom asked for a jersey, he was the one I got for her.

BleedingRedAndGold

I’m not going to. In fact, I’ll add that the team was probably paying close attention to how his recovery was progressing and looked at the curve, and didn’t like what they saw.

This thread’s a demonstration of the problem with trying to figure out exactly what was “the” reason for the move. IMO it wasn’t for one reason, several things were involved. It could be that many of the points here were involved, in whole or in part. E.g., not health OR cap, but health AND cap (and likely a few others, as well.).

And I just got an idea, so be prepared to seek shelter…

My mental health has certainly improved. Being day-to-day with Berry was exhausting.
