NFL WATCH Chiefs post amazing tribute video following release of Eric Berry By Vincent Frank

The Kansas City Chiefs have released Eric Berry. Chiefs coach Andy Reid described Berry as "a special person" and said that "seeing his passion and watching his love for the game has been truly remarkable". "He will always be an important part of our Chiefs family, and we wish him nothing but the best in the future".

They also have agreed to a three-year contract with former Texans safety Tyrann Mathieu.

However else Berry's time in Kansas City will be remembered, the phrase "if only" is nearly inevitably involved.

"On behalf of my family and the entire Chiefs organization, I want to thank Eric for his many contributions to the Chiefs over the last nine seasons", Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said.

He tore his Achilles' tendon in the 2017 opener, sidelining him the rest of the season. He made the Pro Bowl in his rookie season.

Berry was a first-round pick of the Chiefs out of the University of Tennessee in the 2010 draft and was a legitimate star when he was healthy, though that became increasingly uncommon. That was the first of four seasons in which Berry missed nearly an entire season.

An inspirational player on and off the field, Berry's career has been defined by brilliant play and overcoming personal anguish to dominate for the Chiefs. He worked out during the off-season while undergoing chemotherapy treatments. He has participated in only three of the Chiefs' last 34 contests, including the postseason. The veteran All-Pro played in 89 games (87 starts) in his nine seasons with the Chiefs.

Berry has 14 interceptions in his career, returning five for touchdowns.
