Around the Kingdom: Eric Berry Trade Rumors, QB needs, and Royals struggles


Kansas City is one of the best sports towns in the country, and KC Kingdom has a lot of fun bringing you news from around the area for our professional and collegiate teams.

Few fans are as passionate about their teams than Kansas City fans, whether it is making Arrowhead Stadium the loudest outside venue in the world, or filling up Sporting Park each match, or being Royal in Kauffman Stadium. The area also supports three of the most passionate college fan bases in the country.

Each morning, we will try to bring you some news from around our sports kingdom, in addition to the news, information, editorials, and analysis KC Kingdom already provides.

We may also pass along an interesting post or two from around the world wide web, just for fun.

We hope enjoy the news from Around The Kingdom. Happy reading!

The countdown to the draft is now underway in NFL cities across America. Kansas City fans are no less anxious than any other fan base, despite only holding 2 picks in the first 3 rounds.

Ben Nielsen points out a strange amount of buzz around a possible Eric Berry trade. He speculates the Chiefs could deal their 3-time pro-bowl safety on draft day.

Berry may not be any more valuable than he is now. Safeties are all the rage after the way Seattle won the Super Bowl this past February. The combination of Earl Thomasand Kam Chancellor are vital to the way the Seahawks play defense, and their defense is why they won the Super Bowl.

With the inflated value of safeties around the league and Berry coming off of his third Pro Bowl in four years, now may be the time to get max return in a trade.

Ben also has a piece about rumors suggesting Kansas City might be in the quarterback market if a top signal-caller falls to their no. 23 pick.

The Royals and their 5 game losing streak is bringing back bad memories of last season’s 4-19 May meltdown. Ed Connealy at Kings of Kauffman demands that they grow up:

The Royals leaders employ a very gentle, coddling culture for the players and themselves, and it has expired in a major way. It’s big boy time.  If the Royals are under .500 on June 1st, it’s time for major changes, starting with their security blanket manager.  It’s time for this team, this entire team, to grow the hell up.  The fan base finally has.

Meanwhile, an equally unhappy, but more analytical, Hunter Samuels also on Kings of Kauffman points out how the Royals lineup has struggled vs. left-handed starters.
