NFL free agency has gone through its first two waves of signings. One player still available is Eric Berry, and it’s quite painful to see. When he was on, Berrry was a safety no one wanted to [site-decorum] with. The one you didn’t want to challenge on the field. He went through so much adversity, including a battle with cancer and kept coming back after everything. The ruptured Achilles in 2017 was what sealed his fate and the Chiefs released him after the 2018 season.
If he can stay healthy, Berry can be a potential game-changer on the field. That’s a big ‘if.’ As far as news for the team, the longer it’s been, the cheaper Berry could be to sign. Now that we’re into May, maybe it’s time to lock him on one of those one-year prove it deals like Jason Verrett has.
In 2016, Berry finished with four interceptions (two of which became touchdowns) and nine passes defended. In 2017, the aforementioned achilles injury ended his season after one game.
