Eric Berry Named PFWA's Comeback Player of the Year

Berry was named the Pro Football Writers of America’s Comeback Player of the Year

The Pro Football Writers of America have named Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry as their 2015 Comeback Player of the Year.

Berry came back from a cancer diagnosis in November of 2014 and after starting chemotherapy treatments in December, returned to the football field less than a year later to help lead the Chiefs to a franchise-record 11-game winning streak and their first playoff win in more than 22 years.

Berry finished the season with 61 tackles, 2 interceptions and 10 passes defensed and served as the vocal leader for a defense that allowed just 11.8 points per game throughout its winning streak.

His story continues to be the best in the NFL this season.
