The Kansas City Chiefs have released VFL Eric Berry.

Chiefs brass paid tribute to Berry in a series of statements accompanying the announcement of his release.

Berry originally entered the NFL as the fifth-overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft by the Chiefs. The 30-year-old tore his ACL in the 2011 season opener only to have a bout with lymphoma that cut his 2014 campaign short. He has 440 total tackles, 14 interceptions (five returned for touchdowns), 51 passes defensed, 5.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

"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, via the team's official website. "He's a special person, and we wish him the best as his career moves forward". The turnaround for the team was immediate, going 10-6 that season to win the AFC West, and the team made the playoffs for the first time since 2006.

He earned five trips to the Pro Bowl in his time with the Chiefs.

Berry's 2017 season ended after one game because of a torn Achilles tendon.

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. It also marks the end of an error following the release of linebackers Derrick Johnson and Tamba Hali last season, and linebacker Justin Houston this season.

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