Eric Berry became the first Kansas City Chiefs rookie to make a Pro Bowl since 1989 on Sunday, stepping in to fill roster space vacated by the AFC champion Pittsburgh Steelers. The Chiefs made it a two-for-one when Tamba Hali was also added, bringing Kansas CIty's total number of 2011 Pro Bowl players to six.
Berry had an outstanding rookie campaign, finishing with 126 tackles, four interceptions and a touchdown. His four interceptions led the team as he stepped into a starting role right away as a rookie after being drafted by the Chiefs in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft.
Hali led the AFC in sacks in 2010 with 14.5 in 16 games. He finished the year with 50 tackles, four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. The Pro Bowl selection is the first of Hali's five-year career.
The two join Matt Cassel, Dwayne Bowe, Jamaal Charles and Brian Waters on the AFC roster. Cassel was the latest addition, taking the place of Tom Brady last week.
The Pro Bowl kicks off in Hawaii on Jan. 30. Stay tuned to our StoryStream for the latest Pro Bowl Additions.
