NFL Top 100: Eric Berry, Lucky 13

The players in the National Football League have made known what we have all known for years: Eric Berry is one of the best Safeties in the league… and best player for that matter. In fact, there are only 12 players better than our Mr. Berry as the NFL Channel’s show called, “The Top 100 Players of 2017” has tallied the votes of other players and made Eric Berry the 13th best player in the NFL.

 

Here’s a short video on Berry:

Earlier this offseason the Chiefs signed Eric Berry to a 6 year, $78M contract with a $20M signing bonus, $40M guaranteed, and an average annual take of $13M. Berry is not only the Chiefs best — and highest ranked — player but they made him the best paid Safety in the league. However, Berry’s value transcends his market price and his overcoming Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is not only an inspiration to many others around the world but he is “the” locker room and on-field leader.

 

 

 

It doesn’t get much better than Eric Berry. His head and heart are always in the right place and he has progressed to the extent that he’s now able to take over games with his turnovers.

 

 

 

Only Ron Parker played more snaps than Eric Berry in 2016 on the Chiefs defense and Berry was in on 97% of the defensive snap counts with 1,085. EB added four INTs in 2016 with 2 TDs (pick-sixes). The 5th overall selection by the Chiefs in the 2010 draft has 14 career INTs to go along with his 427 career tackles.

 

 

Congratulations to Eric Berry.

    It’s simple by my view. The contract price was a great investment by the Chiefs.

    It’s too hot to think of anything, but Berry is good, so that’s good.

    Berry deserves this Escalade, the guy absolutely plays like a man possessed out there every single time. Berry’s game might not be perfect, but he is undeniably a difference maker.

    Well, at no time have I ever even hinted that Berry was not a very good player. I just don’t put as high of a value on the saftety position that you all seem to have. I also don’t need a hero to worship, especially a sports figure. In my estimation there are several players on the team which I value more than Berry. Smith, Kelsey, Hill, Houston, Peters, Johnson, and Maclin..

      Can understand your point. But as long as we have safeties, isn’t it good to have the very best one?

      • jimfromkcj

        Larry, you can’t really believe he is the best one. Very good, but not the best. As for the salary which was said to be the highest paid safety. I would much rather have the cap space. Maclin was a casualty of the salary paid to Berry and it is likely that we may have to let more players go next year and we still have several positions that are going to have to be negotiated with next year. so even tho it has occurred to Clark that he will never see another super bowl when the cap and dead money is driving the team into a position where it is hard to make improvement to the team. I believe that it is good business sense to not overpay any player at any position. We should concentrate on having a balanced team rather than a team with a few overpaid stars and pick ups from other teams who are unable to make it on other better teams.
