John Dorsey has done a great job at the general manager spot for the Kansas City Chiefs, but these three “big time re-signings” didn’t/haven’t panned out for the organization.

Teams win some and teams lose some when it comes to re-signing players, and that’s why I’m still okay with the Chiefs trying to retain Eric Berry on a long-term deal.
The former first round pick has stated that he won’t play on the franchise tag in 2017, which would mean he’d sit out if he didn’t sign the tag.
Chiefs Kingdom loves Eric Berry and it’d be tough to see him go, but would the team be up for shelling out a big contract for him? KC Kingdom’s own Ben Almquist wrote in a recent piece,
"The Chiefs will have to top Tyrann Mathieu’s $12.5 million per year deal. That is obviously going to be expensive, but that is the situation. Mathieu signed a five-year contract at $62.5 million with $21.25 million guaranteed. My proposal to the Chiefs is to give Eric Berry a similar deal, but exceeding both the total and guaranteed amounts."
It’d be nice to lock Berry up to a deal that keeps him in Kansas City for the rest of his career, but it will be expensive and we’ve seen some of those big time deals completely crash and burn.
Berry proved himself last season, singlehandedly winning the Carolina game and the Atlanta game for the KC Chiefs. He’s a vital part of this Chiefs defense and it’d be tough to let a guy like him leave.
What do you think, Chiefs Kingdom? Do these past re-signings scare you or do you think bringing back Eric Berry on a big contract will be different?
