80. Derrick Johnson sets franchise tackles record (2015)

For the Kansas City Chiefs, the loss of linebacker Derrick Johnson at the beginning of the 2014 season was a crushing blow to the team and player.

Johnson is in his 10th year in the league after being drafted 15th-overall by the Chiefs, has made a remarkable comeback. Johnson has been the cornerstone of the middle of the field for the Chiefs, evident by the fact that early this season in the Monday Night Football game in Green Bay against the Packers, Johnson finally broke the 30-year record for the organization.

Making 1,000 tackles is a huge accomplishment, and even bigger when Johnson has had all 1,000 with the Chiefs. He broke the record set by Chiefs great Gary Spani, who was inducted into the Chiefs Hall of Fame in 2003.

Johnson, at almost 33 years of age, suffered a torn Achilles in 2014, an injury that has the ability to end the career of some players. Johnson was able to come back in 2015 and has returned to the form he once displayed. Johnson is not done in a Chiefs uniform, and will continue to be a valued member of this team as long as he can lace up his shoes and make a difference in the Chiefs defensive front seven.
