Chiefs' Eric Berry: Returns to form in 2015
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
