Eric Berry: Meeting with Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys will host Berry on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

After being linked with Earl Thomas (leg) for the better part of a year, Dallas apparently didn't reach out to the unrestricted free agent last week, per Todd Archer of ESPN.com. Management now is honing in on Berry, who has tended to health issues of his own in recent seasons. Since notching 77 tackles and picking off four passes in 2016, he's combined for 18 tackles and no interceptions in three appearances with the Chiefs the past two years. If he signs a deal with the Cowboys, Berry likely will serve as depth at the safety position, considering his inability to stay on the field of late.

Eric Berry: Hopeful for 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Berry (heel) was told he should be able to play in 2019 with the ankle condition that sidelined him last year, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Berry visited a renowned foot and ankle specialist, Dr. Robert Anderson, in Green Bay after the season. After a thorough examination, the defensive back was told he will not require surgery and that the injury should be something he can play through. Garafolo noted that the new treatment plan Anderson devised is supposed to maintain Berry's condition better than last season, when the three-time Pro Bowler appeared in just two games while constantly being listed as "day-to-day" on the injury report. When he can show teams he's on the right track, Berry is expected to garner "significant immediate interest" on the open market.

Eric Berry: Cut by Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Berry (heel) was released by the Chiefs on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

More than $7 million of Berry's salary would have become fully guaranteed had Kansas City kept him on the roster through Friday. Per Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star, the Chiefs will take on roughly $7 million in dead money this season but will also net a cap savings of $9.5 million. While the reality of this transaction might be hard to swallow for most Chiefs fans, it's not a huge surprise the organization didn't want to invest big money into a 30-year-old safety who has been limited to three games over the past two seasons while recovering from a devastating Achilles/heel injury. Once he can prove he's healthy, Berry shouldn't have trouble finding a new home.

Chiefs' Eric Berry: Surgery not necessary
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Berry won't need additional surgery for his heel injury and plans to participate in all offseason activities, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reports.

Following the Chiefs' exit from the playoffs it was initially reported Berry may need surgery to address linger heel pain, but general manager Brett Veach said early this month he did not aggravate the injury. The veteran safety played in only three games this season -- including playoffs -- due to the heel issue, so the fact no further procedures are planned is a step in the right direction.

Chiefs' Eric Berry: Ends season on positive note
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Brett Veach suggested Berry did not aggravate his heel injury during the Chiefs' loss to the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game, Nate Taylor of the Athletic reports.

Prior to the AFC Championship Game, Andie Hagemann of the NFL Network suggested that the pain in Berry's heal continues to linger and that the safety will likely need surgery to correct the issue. There's been no word of a specific timeline for his offseason, though, making it uncertain Berry will be available for the start of OTAs this spring. In any event, it's a positive development for all parties that Berry didn't seem to sustain any setbacks during Kansas City's playoff run.
