Former Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry intends to resume his career for the 2020 season, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports.

Berry didn't play at all this past campaign after being cut by the Chiefs in March.

The decision to sit out the season was intentional, added Garafolo, who said the safety had offers from teams but took a "sabbatical" to get himself physically and mentally healthy.

The 31-year-old played in just three games combined during the 2017 and 2018 seasons. He suffered a torn Achilles in the first contest of the 2017 campaign, while a Haglund's deformity in his Achilles kept him sidelined until the Chiefs' 14th game of the following year.

Berry made five Pro Bowl appearances and was named a first-team All-Pro three times. After overcoming Hodgkin's lymphoma, the former first-round pick was named Comeback Player of the Year in 2015.
