Berry, who returned to the field in 2015 after battling Hodgkin's lymphoma, earned his fourth Pro Bowl nod in the process, while also being named the NFL's Comeback Player of the Year. The Chiefs' starting free safety recorded 61 tackles and two picks in 16 games this past season, his sixth with the team. By using the tag on Berry, the Kansas City Star relays that the safety is set to receive a one-year contract tender worth approximately $10.8 million.
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.
