- S Eric Berry (Kansas City Chiefs)
Eric Berry… what an incredible human being. Not just an incredible football player but as a human being. This man is incredibly inspiring. He beat cancer. He came back stronger, better than prior to cancer. He has single handedly won games for the Chiefs this season.
Berry is currently playing under a franchise tag after the Chiefs and himself couldn’t agree to contract terms. I believe there is some reservations on the Chiefs side due to health risks but what Eric Berry has done this season should put those to rest. I can’t imagine the Chiefs letting him walk. What he’s done for the Chiefs, the city of Kansas City, and the fans is bigger than football. He is a class act and one of, if not, the best secondary players in all of football.
The Titans glaring weakness is in the secondary (as a whole). Jason McCourty isn’t quite what he used to be. Da’Norris Searcy has been slightly underwhelming. The Titans handed Perrish Cox his pink slip a couple weeks ago. Rashad Johnson has been okay. Do you see the theme here?
Bringing in a game-changing player like Eric Berry would be franchise changing. In a perfect world if the Titans were only able to make two acquisitions I would pick Jason Pierre-Paul and Eric Berry. What the addition of those two would do for our defense would be truly scary. Those are game changing acquisitions. Having over the top coverage while you have an improved pass rush creates many opportunities for turnovers.
Eric Berry is easily one of my favorite players in the league. He is truly inspiring and one hell of a football player. That is why Berry is at the top of my wish list and there is a big separation between him and the rest of the pack.
