Berry will "definitely not" play under the franchise tag in 2017, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Berry earned $10.8 million this season while playing under Kansas City's franchise tag, but that only came after he reported late for training camp in the wake of an unsuccessful attempt to secure a long-term contract. Despite a delayed start to his 2016 campaign, Berry still finished with 77 tackles (62 solo), four interceptions and two defensive touchdowns, earning his fifth Pro-Bowl selection along the way. At 28 years old, Berry is a vital cog in the Chiefs defense and hopes to finish his career in Kansas City, but he'll only return if a long-term agreement is reached.

Berry finished 2016 with 77 tackles (62 solo), four interceptions (two touchdowns) and one forced fumble.

EDGE Analysis

Berry continues to play at an elite level at the safety position, but enters the offseason with his contract expiring after playing 2016 on the Chiefs' franchise tag. He held out much of camp, but was ultimately unable to reach a multi-year deal with the club. Given his invaluable play for a second straight season, Kansas City may need to pony up a hefty sum to keep his services in the secondary moving forward. Should the two sides fail to reach an agreement again, the franchise tag likely wouldn't be off the table again.

Berry (Achilles) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Berry injured his Achilles in Week 17's win over the Chargers, but after getting the past week off to rest, the safety returned to the practice field as a full participant. He will be a full-go for Sunday's tilt with the Steelers, bolstering the Chiefs' secondary.

Berry injured his heel during the Chiefs' 37-27 victory over the Chargers on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

It appeared Berry could've returned to the game, but -- nursing a 10-point lead -- the Chiefs' seemed content in letting him sit. He shouldn't miss any time in the postseason.

Berry forced a fumble while adding 11 tackles in Sunday's loss to the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

With three interceptions, a forced fumble and two touchdowns, Berry is one of the best big-play safeties in the league. In addition, he's piled up at least nine tackles in three of his last six games, making him a fantastic IDP weekly option.

Not only did Berry score on a 37-yard interception return prior to halftime, but he also picked off a two-point conversion attempt, returning it for two points himself to take a 29-28 lead in Sunday's victory over the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Berry only recorded two tackles in Sunday's win, but he made his presence felt on two of the biggest plays of the game. The interception was his third of the season, while the trip to the end zone was his second. The 27-year-old strong safety will look to continue his stellar play in Thursday's tilt against the Raiders.

Berry returned an interception for a touchdown while recording nine tackles and two passes defensed Sunday against the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Berry has been improving his tackle numbers lately as he's piled up 21 over his last four games. In addition, he's been credited with seven passes defensed and two interceptions over his last seven games. Although he's not a dominant IDP option, his recent tackle numbers make him a quality roster option at defensive back.

Berry (knee) was a full participant during Friday's practice and should be good to go Sunday against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Berry's knee issue appears to be behind him as he'll be out on the field in full force Sunday. In the case of any setback, Daniel Sorensen figures to be his primary backup at strong safety.

Berry (knee) was a full participant at Thursday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Berry's no-limitation practice Thursday indicates that he should be ready to play Sunday. It was suspected that he would play even if limited throughout the week, but now that he's fully healthy it would take a setback to his knee to alter his game status.
