Injuries have kept him from being the Eric Berry we all know and love, but he’s too talented when healthy to remain unsigned. In 2016, Berry earned an 89.9 overall grade across 1,151 defensive snaps in Kansas City.
The Cowboys have been rumored to be in the mix for a number of safeties throughout the offseason, and they eventually brought in George Iloka to compete for a roster spot. Berry would be an immediate upgrade at the position, and he would provide an influx of veteran leadership among a defensive back unit filled with youthful playmakers.
KANSAS CITY CHIEFS: Dustin Colquitt, P. I mean, if you’re the punter for the Chiefs, you’re going to be as lonely as I was most Friday and Saturday nights in high school. But in my defense, I got really good at Mario Kart. And Colquitt at least gets to hold on field goals and extra points, so he’s making a contribution.
2. A simple plan for handling Hill
1. Suspend Hill for six games next season. It can be easily justified, and the Elliott case offers a road map. He was suspended for six games despite a remarkably flawed NFL investigation, but the courts still upheld the suspension because the league’s CBA gives Goodell unprecedented power.
Derrick Johnson’s advice upon learning Gary would be headed to Kansas City was to arrive with a free mind and determined work ethic, and the Chiefs newcomer relished having an advocate.
“Not many guys have a chance to talk to someone like Derrick,” Gary Johnson said. “I soaked in as much as I could.”
The 49ers quarterback currently is rehabbing from a torn ACL suffered during Week 3 last season against the Kansas City Chiefs. Brady suffered a torn ACL during the first game of the 2008 season ... against the Chiefs. You see where this is going.
On Wednesday, Jimmy G was asked about the advice Brady might have given him about coming back from a torn ACL, but the 27-year-old wasn’t about to divulgeTB12’s method.
”I’ve got to keep that confidential,” Garoppolo said, via The Mercury News. “But I did actually talk to him about it for a bit. He’s been through everything, seen everything, so whenever I can pick his brain that’s a good thing.”
At Arrowhead Wednesday, a group of Chiefs players teamed up with some Girl Scouts and it’s hard to tell who had more fun.
The future looks bright in Kansas City, but the team still came up short in 2018. Did the Chiefs do enough this offseason to get over that hump and into the Super Bowl?
Around the league
These are the plans behind the league’s resurrection.
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott will pay for the funeral expenses of Jaylon McKenzie, a promising eighth-grade football player who was killed by a stray bullet as he left a party near St. Louis on Saturday night.
Jones told reporters at the team’s annual golf outing at Cowboys Golf Club that the team is still interested in extending running back Ezekiel Elliott at some point, but is focusing its energy on re-signing the two playmakers whose deals expire after the 2019 season, per ESPN’s Todd Archer.
Ziggy Ansah has found a new home in Seattle.
The Seahawks are signing the free agent pass rusher to a one-year deal, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Wednesday night.
