After Battling Lymphoma, Eric Berry Won Comeback Player of the Year

According to Mail Online, Kansas City safety Eric Berry gave an emotionally charged speech while accepting Comeback Player of the Year. See speech above.

Berry missed 10 games the previous season battling lymphoma, then returned to the Chiefs to become an All-Pro. His inspirational story and superb performance on the field earned him 38 votes.

‘Everybody, just live out your dreams. Don’t let anything come in between,’ Berry said. ‘I’m truly honored, truly blessed, truly thankful to be standing here before you all. … It was some tough times. It was some times where I felt like I couldn’t do it anymore. … There was a lot of rough times, a lot of rough nights, a lot of lonely nights.’

The award was presented Saturday night during NFL Honors.
