Chiefs safety Eric Berry says he won’t play in 2017 under franchise tag

Chiefs safety Eric Berry was a good soldier in 2016. He wanted to get a long-term deal done, but deemed the team’s final offer unsatisfactory, so he ended up playing the season on the franchise tag. That provided him with a hefty $10.8 million salary, but not the long-term security he craved, so during a media tour with the networks on Thursday – and in an interview with The Star – Berry made it clear that he had no intention of playing next season under the franchise tag again.

Unfortunately for the Chiefs, the Steelers — a battled-tested group led by a two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback and a Super Bowl-winning coach — were more prepared to win that type of battle.
