Move over, Gary Spani. Derrick Johnson is here.
DJ was just five tackles away from the record entering Monday's game in Green Bay and he made it happen in the game, surpassing the previous record held by Gary Spani (999).
This solidifies DJ as one of the all-time Chiefs. We already knew he was but this franchise record cements him as one of the best Chiefs linebackers in history. I also think this gets him a spot on the Chiefs ring of honor.
Congrats to DJ!
