According to the Kansas City Star, the Chiefs plan on using safety Eric Berry as a pass rusher as well as a linebacker in certain packages.
“I’m going to be all over the place,” Berry said
Berry has been forced to learn new positions.
“I really had to get into my playbook because there are certain things I didn’t know how to do in the past,” said Berry, in his fourth season with the Chiefs. “I have to know what to do as a linebacker … sometimes I’m rushing off the edge. Sometimes I have to stay on top of my game before … like with the safety position.
“There are just so many different things that I have to know what to do, and I pretty much just cause confusion on the opposing offense. I guess that’s my job.”
Berry is a heck of a player and is versatile enough to play all over the field. It will be interesting to see how he performs in a new role.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kevin Stinking Boss, kids.
That's right: A year ago at this time, on August 6, 2012, the Kansas City Chiefs' starting tight end on the first depth chart of the preseason was Kevin Boss. It gets better.

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By DAVE SKRETTA AP Sports Writer There were four players in the NFL last season who made at least seven interceptions.
Then there was the Kansas City Chiefs. They picked off seven, too.
It took dozens of lousy plays over the course of the season for the Chiefs to have one of the worst years in franchise history. But their inability to cause turnovers, particularly...
St. Joseph, MO - A year ago Kansas City Chiefs Kicker, Ryan Succop, did something he’d not done in his NFL career to date, he missed some short kicks. None of them would have affected the outcome of the 2012 season. But nonetheless, it’s something that new Special Teams Coach, David Toub, is aiming to change.
