Eric Berry plans to return to NFL in 2020

Recommended Posts

Not sure if he will make a successful comeback but I'm rooting for him.

Awesome.  One of the best safeties in the league when he was able to play.  Wish him the best.

I never wanted a player to pan out more than Eric Berry.  He was so much fun to watch at UT.

I'm confused, as to his health. Is a return a pipedream, or something reasonable?

Ill never forget how pissed I was when the Cheifs took him 1 pick before the Browns. Probably let out a neighborhood rattling 'NOOOOO' when they announced the pick

I wonder if it was more of a mental thing with his health...  dude went through so much,  maybe his mind needed a break as much as his body.

Always a fan of Eric no matter where he ends up

I doubt he'll ever quite be the same, at this point. Between various injuries and just age, now. This would've been year 10, for him. Same draft class as Earl Thomas. So even if he's healthy, it's very unlikely he looks like 2012-2016 Berry. He's smart enough to compensate mentally, to a degree, though, so I wouldn't be surprised if he was still a plus player for someone. And I certainly hope he is. He's that kind of player where no matter where he goes, I'll want him to have as much success as humanly possible.

what would you expect his deal to be, a 1 year prove it deal?

Most likely with a 2nd year option for the club (in case he balls out), plus numerous incentives/escalators for certain categories he's achieved in years past when he was All Pro!

I hope he comes back and balls out but unless he got his haglunds deformity fixed he's always gonna have that cloud over his head waiting for a flair up. I'd be pretty surprised if a team passes him on a physical.

Has Patriot written all over this. Takes Chongs spot. Declining skills. BB uses his strengths.

I remember that hit he laid on Knowshon Moreno.

i just got into football in high school and he was my favorite college player. The Chiefs were terrible that year and had the worst Safety play in the league. Then  they got him and that was awesome.

For those that don’t know this is a bone spur in the heel that agitates the Achilles Tendon. This has been bothering him for 3 years now(possibly longer) and he won’t do surgery, I think because it requires rupturing of the Achilles to shave down the spur. He has already ruptured the other side overcompensating for the Haglunds.

Good for him, one of my favorite players!

 

Berry is one of the best, sucks he isn't on the Chiefs SB team this year. I wouldn't mind if the Lynn and Telesco gave him a chance if his health checked out.
