Eric Berry named PFWA's 2015 Comeback Player of the Year

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

John Dorsey has already admitted he's had "various discussions" with the representatives for safety Eric Berry to have the Pro Bowler return to the Kansas City Chiefs next season. Now Berry has another feather to put in his cap.

Berry was named the Comeback Player of the Year by the Pro Football Writers Association for 2015. It's not a surprise at all, considering Berry already earned the honor from multiple media outlets and is the best sports story from the last year.

With 61 tackles, 10 passes defended, 2 interceptions and an ability to excel against the run and the pass, Berry solidified his standing as one of the NFL's best safeties. It's an incredible feat considering Berry was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma last winter.

Berry was the Chiefs first round draft pick, No. 5 overall, in 2010. In six seasons, Berry has been to three Pro Bowls and has been named 1st Team All-Pro on two occasions. In 68 career starts, Berry has 305 tackles, 10 interceptions, 5.5 sacks, 3 forced fumbles and 3 defensive touchdowns.
