The time is right for the Chiefs to trade Eric Berry

The Chiefs should trade Eric Berry. There, let that sit for a moment. The NFL is a cold business, and sometimes the truth hurts, so let’s just get into it. There is no room for sentimental value here. Everyone is a commodity, and for the Chiefs, Berry is more valuable as a trade piece than the starting strong safety. Trading Berry would anger Chiefs fans, require some major...

Chiefs Have Reasons to Draft Safety at #23

Eric Berry has been to 3 Pro Bowls in his 3 seasons played. He was 1st team All-Pro one year.
