Report says Eric Berry, Chiefs working on deal to make him highest paid safety in NFL

This seems ... optimistic? NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Chiefs and Eric Berry are working on a deal that would make him the highest paid safety in the NFL. There are no sources named here so we don’t know where this coming from.
