Peyton Manning isn’t new to television, but for the first time Wednesday, the former NFL quarterback appeared in a show as someone other than Peyton Manning.
Kansas City and star safety Eric Berry have agreed to terms on a long-term Cheap Full Dye Softball Jerseys contract, the club announced Tuesday.
ESPN.com reported the deal is for six years and worth a whopping $78 million, including $40 million guaranteed and a $20 million signing bonus.
Berry, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma on Dec. 8, 2014, returned to make the Pro Bowl in 2015. He then built on that season by earning his fifth Pro Bowl appearance in 2016 after finishing with four interceptions and two touchdowns.
Kansas City was desperately trying to get the deal done before Wednesday’s franchise-tag deadline. Instead of tagging Berry, the team can now use it to keep defensive tackle Dontari Poe from entering free agency.
Berry will earn $13 million per year, making him the highest-paid safety in the league.
He set a Super Bowl record with 37 completions and tossed four touchdown passes to four different receivers (accounting for all of New England’s touchdowns). He also came through in the clutch: After the Seahawks got a 10-point lead in the third quarter, he completed 15 of 19 passes for 138 yards and two fourth-quarter touchdowns in the 28-24 win.
