Chiefs Make Eric Berry Highest Paid Safety In NFL History

The contract numbers are in for Kansas City Chiefs rookie safety Eric Berry and they're big.

Very big.

Per Jason La Canfora of NFL Network, Berry received a six-year contract worth a maximum of $60 million.

That's a $10 million per-year average that I told you they wanted to hit.

The guaranteed portion is $34 million.

The contract makes him the highest paid safety in the history of the NFL.

For a reference, fourth overall pick Trent Williams reportedly received a similar deal but with slightly less than $3 million more in guaranteed dollars.

Welcome to Kansas City, Eric Berry.
