Positive news: Heard from Eric Berry's mom, who said he's doing "great" and his "progress is great" in his battle against Hodgkin lymphoma.

This news is "great". Even if the guy can not make it back to the field, I am hopeful for his quality of life to be good moving forward.

I am all for the encouraging news on the health of Berry. But from a business stand point, exactly what are the options for the Chiefs, IF, Berry is unable to return to full duties. Can we just out release him, if so what are the Cap issue ramifications? Does the NFL have contingency options in place for teams with the same issues on players who are "unable to preform, due to a non-related injury on the field of play"? These are important questions strictly from a business point of view, that I haven't seen mentioned or answered in the media.

While on NFI (and I assume he'll stay there for the season) the Chiefs are not obliged to pay him anything. Thus only the prorated portion of his signing bonus (about 2.9 M$) counts against the cap. If they pay him anything voluntarily - that sumwill count against the cap as well.

His contract expires after the 2015 season - so as of now he will not have any impact on next year's cap.

You should have read our little Roster Analysis series .. discussed it there as well. Twisted Evil

A somewhat older piece on the financial situation and how it was handled back in Philadelphia when Reid was there (and responsible for personnel matters as well).

Still looks pretty physically strong, that is one of the hardest things with Chemo, keeping your muscles strong. Good to see him smiling, all positives.

Hope he can get back to a healthy normal life, would love to get him back on the gridiron, but quality of life has to come first.

Love seeing this. It's the main reason I've never doubted Berry in all this.

For all the things he does on the field, his personality is the main reason he will be always be on top of any favorite players list of mine!!

“Everything up to this point has been very positive from the doctor and from Eric,” Reid said. “So I think we’re heading in the right direction with that.”



There was no mention of a time table for his return.
