Eric Berry's Agent Denies Saying Deal With Chiefs Is 'Close'

New, comments

About two hours ago, Jim Wogan of WATE in Knoxville, TN sent out the following tweet:

Day before Chiefs open training camp. Eric Berry still unsigned. Agent told me last night, they're close.

Berry's agent, however, tells me the report is not true and he hasn't talked about Berry's contract to Wogan.

Now, that's not necessarily to say that the Chiefs and Berry aren't close. Maybe they are, maybe they aren't.  But Berry's agent hasn't talked to this particular reporter about it.

We've got a call into the reporter to figure out what's up.

[Update 1:51 p.m. I spoke with Wogan and he wanted to clarify that he did not speak with Berry's agent but a rep from his agency. He did not make that clear in his original report, he says. However, he is still confident in his original report that the two sides are close.]
