The Lounge>Eric Berry Released!

It's done. The spirit is free. (Don't go towards the light.)

The #Chiefs have released S Eric Berry. End of an era in KC.

The Chiefs have released Berry with a post-June 1 designation, a source tells me. Means the Chiefs will save around $9.5m on the cap this year and $5.5m next year.

These national football guys don't follow the sport very closely. The Berry era basically ended in 2016.

I believe there is something to this. I wouldn't be surprised if he retires honestly.

I'll be excited when they give us something to be excited about.

Right now we're just looking at the aftermath of a nuke.

I don't hate Berry but the handling of that situation was so bizarre that it left pretty much everyone with a sour puss.

Best of luck, Berry! The good times were definitely good.

I may get flamed for this, but chronic pain is sometimes psychological. Berry has certainly been through hell and back that's for sure.

That said, at least the Chiefs handled it in a relatively classy way.

And you kinda knew that with the way Veach spoke about it two weeks ago.

"We have a plan for Eric Berry".

That plan is finding his replacement and cutting him.
Perfect example of why people should never assume anything a coach or GM says about players as the reality.

Remember when eid said Berry was in their plans a few weeks ago and this place lost it?

Well they did a big video and promotion of his return. Then when he went back out again I guess they dropped him from all promotional materials. That was the point you knew they weren't thrilled.

By the end of the year it sure felt like Berry and Houston were just playing out their contracts w/o much fire. Although Houston rallied at the end of the year. But that kind of attitude is going to infect other players on the D. Players know when someone is just going through the motions and saying the right things vs. someone who is killing themselves to win a ring.

hated to see him go out the way he did here. Could have been one of the greatest if it weren't for injuries and cancer and last season we just didn't know what the hell was going on.

Eric Berry held $14.95M of dead cap this year. If that’s all take in 2019, it represents a cap savings of $1.55M for the #Chiefs. If he’s designated a Post 6/1 release, they’ll take on dead hits of $6.95M in 2019, & $8M in 2020, clearing $9.55M of cap this year.
