The Kansas City Chiefs have released Eric Berry.
"I'd like to thank Eric for his contributions to our team and the Kansas City community over the last nine years," coach Andy Reid said Wednesday in a statement from the Chiefs. "Seeing his passion and watching his love for the game has been truly remarkable. He's a special person, and we wish him the best as his career moves forward."
The move comes following Kansas City's agreement with Tyrann Mathieu on a three-year, $42 million contract.
Berry was voted first-team All-Pro three times.
Berry's 2014 season was cut short by a lymphoma diagnosis, but he returned in time for the start of the next season
