Chiefs organization thanks Eric Berry for nine seasons with the franchise

But his tenure with the Chiefs came to an end Wednesday when the team announced that it had released Berry.

The five-time pro-bowler was a staple of the Chiefs' defense when healthy, but he struggled to stay on the field in recent years, including having to sit out most of last season with an Achilles injury.

The Eric Berry era is over in Kansas City.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Chiefs cut Berry before $7.25 million of his 2019 salary became fully guaranteed on Friday. But he also missed most of the 2011 season with torn knee ligaments, most of the 2017 season with a torn Achilles' tendon, and almost all of last season, when a mysterious heel injury kept him off the field for all but two games. The Chiefs selected him with the fifth-overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.
