Chiefs Team Awards Honor Jamaal Charles, Eric Berry

The Kansas City Chiefs players have voted and RB Jamaal Charles and S Eric Berry are your big winners. The team announced that via a player vote the team has named Charles as the team MVP and Berry as the team rookie of the year.

Was there ever any doubt?

Charles is arguably the only player you point at and say, 'The Chiefs have a chance on Sunday because this guy is on the field.' Meanwhile Berry headed a rookie class that has begun to usher in a new era of Chiefs football. Great choices by the players.

The MVP award is named after Derrick Thomas while the rookie of the year award is named after Mack Lee Hill. The awards are especially meaningful because they're voted on by their teammates.

As Josh Looney of KCChiefs.com points out, it's the latest in a long line of awards for Charles, who was also voted as a first team All-Pro by Pro Football Weekly and the (other) AP in addition to the FedEx Ground Player of the Year. Berry lead the team in interceptions, was named NFL rookie of the month for December/January and was named to the All-Rookie team by Pro Football Weekly and Sporting News.

The awards will be handed out at the 41st 101 Awards Banquet on March 5 in downtown Kansas City, where Todd Haley will also be awarded the AFC coach of the year.
