Kansas City Chiefs All-Pro safety?Eric Berry?is expected to miss most, if not all, of the preseason, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Sergio Romo Jersey .Chiefs rookies reported to training camp Tuesday.?As an unsigned, franchise-tagged player, Berry is not required to report to training camp and the club cannot fine him for not reporting.Berrys one-year franchise tag salary is $10.806 million for the 2016 season.The deadline for extending contracts for players on franchise tags passed July 15.Coach Andy Reid said Tuesday that he has been in contact recently with Berry, but did not know whether Berry would report Friday, when other Chiefs veterans are scheduled to report. But Reid didnt sound as if he was expecting Berrys absence to be extended.Whatever way you cut it, Eric Berry is a great football player, and good things are going to happen to him here, Reid said. I know how hes wired. He loves to play the game. Thats how it is.Its a weird dynamic that youre juggling with finances and playing and all those things. Ive seen it before. Guys normally come in, and they just go. When its time to play, they play. They put the business side aside, and they get after it.Information from ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher was used in this report. Womens Rays Jerseys . Peter Gammons, an analyst for Major League Baseballs network and website, drew the ire of hockey fans on Sunday when he criticized the two NHL teams on Twitter for their physical game the night before. Rays Jerseys From China .Y. -- Paul Byron and Matt Stajan scored as the Calgary Flames started a five-game road trip with a 2-1 overtime win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday afternoon. http://www.raysjerseyscheap.com/ . Vaives lawyer Trevor Whiffen claims the former 50-goal man wasnt provided with a copy of the claim beforehand and that he would not have agreed to the allegations made against the NHL had he been asked to review its contents. LAS VEGAS -- Until this year, Miesha Tate seemed destined to spend her career in Ronda Rouseys shadow. She persevered for several years as the second-best fighter in her emerging sport, twice failing to stop Rouseys remarkable rise to stardom.Everything changed in the past few months after Tate finally got her break, choking Holly Holm unconscious to win the UFC bantamweight title.And then this week, she got a few more breaks. Thanks to Jon Jones positive drug test, Tate suddenly finds herself in the incredible position of fighting in the main event at the landmark UFC 200.Its such a great opportunity to deliver an excellent performance and really represent womens MMA, Tate said of the chance to fight on the main pay-per-view card. Thats what Im all about. I want to go out there and I want to defend my belt, and I want to make a statement that womens MMA is awesome.UFC 200 was absolutely stacked with stars even before Anderson Silva agreed to replace Jones on two days notice against Daniel Cormier. Nine current or former UFC champions are on the biggest pay-per-view show of the summer.But on a night also featuring Brock Lesnars return from a 4 1/2-month MMA absence and a tantalizing interim featherweight title bout between Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar, Tates bantamweight title defense against Amanda Nunes has been promoted to the main event Saturday. UFC President Dana White said he wanted to show respect to Tate, the only undisputed champion risking her belt.I feel theres a lot pressure on me, but the thing that I really like about that is I know it, Tate said. I accept it, and I know that I thrive well under pressure.Just four months after winning the belt that Holm took from Rousey, Tate is on top of the 135-pound division at the moment it gets hit with mixed martial arts brightest spotlight.And then Tate (18-5) barely made weight Friday morning, desperately cutting ounces until she jumped on the scale moments before the deadline. After a few hours to hydrate, Tate was reinvigorated by the thought of fighting Nunes (12-4).Im going to go out there (Saturday) and Im going to rip her heart out of her chest and stomp on it, Tate said with a grin.Not much has come easy for Tate, but she perseveres.She picked up MMA in 2005 after a high schoool wrestling career, and she fought in a series of minor-league promotions for little more than pride. Chris Archer Jersey. Tate fought Rousey in 2012 and 2013, losing by armbar both times. She seemed stuck -- unable to beat the biggest star in the sport, but better than just about everybody else. But Tate kept grinding and won her next five fights.When Holm thrashed Rousey, the star boxer seemed unbeatable -- but Tate beat her in March with patience and canny fighting skills, luring the superior striker into an inescapable choke. At 29, she was finally a champion.Tate has been enjoying the spoils of her title, appearing on Good Morning America and Conan. Yet she also turns down many more opportunities, including chances to add to her fledgling acting credits after appearing in a recent film.Tate is mindful of the way Rouseys public persona exploded shortly before Holm kicked her in the head and ended her title reign.You have to keep your eyes focused on the task at hand, Tate said. You have to ask yourself, `What do I really want? To me, the most important thing is to defend my belt. Its not making movies. If those things can fall into place in a time when it makes sense, then great. But in the middle of my training camp, youve just got to tell them no.Her current task is Nunes, a Brazilian veteran on a three-fight winning streak. Tate claims she was surprised when her next bout wasnt a rematch with Holm, but she accepted the matchup.She also hopes for a third fight with Rousey, who hasnt fought since losing in November and shows little indication that shes hungry to get back on the MMA grind.I would be disappointed if (Rousey) doesnt come back, if I dont get that opportunity, Tate said. There would be a void that didnt get filled. I hope thats not the case. But if it is, life goes on.UFC 200s pay-per-view card begins with heavyweights Cain Velasquez and Travis Browne. The undercard features former bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw, former welterweight champion Johny Hendricks and several other title contenders alongside surefire crowd-pleasing fights featuring Joe Lauzon, Diego Sanchez, Jim Miller and Takanori Gomi.
