Chiefs working on contract extension with Eric Berry

Eric Berry is set to become a free agent when the new league year begins. There is no doubt that he would generate interest from just about every team in the NFL if he hit the market. Unfortunately, it looks like he won't make it the open market:

Berry would have been a really nice addition for the Titans. He is an excellent free safety and is only 27 years old. Think about how much of an upgrade the Titans would get back there if they had Berry instead of Michael Griffin. Those would be good times.

This happens every year. The free agent class that we think we will see come March/April looks a lot different than the one we actually see.
