Chiefs' Eric Berry: Rejects franchise tag talk
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Berry will "definitely not" play under the franchise tag in 2017, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Berry earned $10.8 million this season while playing under Kansas City's franchise tag, but that only came after he reported late for training camp in the wake of an unsuccessful attempt to secure a long-term contract. Despite a delayed start to his 2016 campaign, Berry still finished with 77 tackles (62 solo), four interceptions and two defensive touchdowns, earning his fifth Pro Bowl selection along the way. At 28 years old, Berry is a vital cog in the Chiefs defense and reportedly hopes to finish his career in Kansas City, but it looks like he'll only return if a long-term agreement is reached.

Chiefs' Eric Berry: Posts Pro Bowl-caliber season in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Berry finished 2016 with 77 tackles (62 solo), four interceptions (two touchdowns) and one forced fumble.

Berry continues to play at an elite level at the safety position, but enters the offseason with his contract expiring after playing 2016 on the Chiefs' franchise tag. He held out much of camp, but was ultimately unable to reach a multi-year deal with the club. Given his invaluable play for a second straight season, Kansas City may need to pony up a hefty sum to keep his services in the secondary moving forward. Should the two sides fail to reach an agreement again, the franchise tag likely wouldn't be off the table again.

Chiefs' Eric Berry: Full participant in practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Berry (Achilles) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Berry injured his Achilles in Week 17's win over the Chargers, but after getting the past week off to rest, the safety returned to the practice field as a full participant. He will be a full-go for Sunday's tilt with the Steelers, bolstering the Chiefs' secondary.

Chiefs' Eric Berry: Injures heel Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Berry injured his heel during the Chiefs' 37-27 victory over the Chargers on Sunday.

It appeared Berry could've returned to the game, but -- nursing a 10-point lead -- the Chiefs' seemed content in letting him sit. He shouldn't miss any time in the postseason.

Chiefs' Eric Berry: Forces fumble in Sunday loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Berry forced a fumble while adding 11 tackles in Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Titans.

With three interceptions, a forced fumble and two touchdowns, Berry is one of the best big-play safeties in the league. In addition, he's piled up at least nine tackles in three of his last six games, making him a fantastic IDP weekly option.
