Eric Berry finished the 2015 campaign with 61 tackles (55 solo) and two interceptions.
After missing a the 2014 campaign due to a bout with cancer, Berry emerged better than ever, and returned to his previous form in 2015. He'll likely put his name in the hat for the Comeback Player of the Year award alongside teammate Derrick Johnson, but he will enter the offseason as an unrestricted free agent. It seems likely the Kansas City Chiefs will make a push to re-sign Berry, but there's no guarantee he will be back in Kansas City for 2016.
Berry was diagnosed in December and completed treatment in June. He'll return to practice on Wednesday.
Andy Reid has declared that
The 26-year-old Berry is battling Hodgkin's lymphoma, which limited him to six games last season. It remains to be seen if and when he returns to the field.
“He’s doing well in that treatment process, but that’s a tough process to go through,” said Clark Hunt, who visited Berry in Atlanta in January and gets regular updates on his status.
Head coach Andy Reid also reiterated that Berry is progressing well.
“He’s doing well,” said Reid, who said he last spoke to Berry a week before he arrived for the meetings. “(He’s) positive and upbeat.”
"Well, anybody who knows Eric Berry knows that if there's a challenge presented to him, he will attack it with a vengeance," Dorsey said, per NFL.com. "And he will do that. Everything that I have gotten back has been very positive. I have not spoken with him on the phone for probably six weeks, but I have texts. We communicated through texts. He's in good spirits, he's fine, he's driving, and he's going to conquer it."
Berry, 26, was diagnosed in December. His career is on hold while he fights the treatable disease.
