The Kansas City Star’s Sam Mellinger believes that the Kansas City Chiefs should consider trading Eric Berry. He goes on to say that if the Chiefs are considering making such a deal, they should do so now.
Most of you will think I'm nuts for this, but the Chiefs should trade Eric Berry. http://t.co/ZyDJjjaLEM

Mellinger’s argument boils down to two things: the Chiefs are strapped for cash and they’re in desperate need of extra picks. Trading Berry would be a solution to both issues.
The idea makes sense, in theory. But what about in the locker room? If Eric Berry is traded, who steps up as the vocal leader? Without Berry, who is the guy in the defensive secondary that you trust?
Trading Berry solves some issues, but opens up another gaping hole at safety – a position that is already a need even with Berry locking down one side of the field.
