Earlier on Friday, the Associated Press released its First-Team All-Pro list for the 2015 National Football League season, and Eric Berry was the only member of the Kansas City Chiefs to make the cut.
However, the Second-Team Al-Pro list came out later in the day, and the Chiefs had two more representatives, both on the defensive side of the ball. Both inside linebacker Derrick Johnson and cornerback Marcus Peters made it, something that is tremendous for both players.
For Peters, you can’t start a career any better than this. Peters led the league with eight interceptions and was named to the Pro Bowl. Now, the 18th-overall pick is also an All-Pro, continuing his meteoric rise as one of the elite players in the game. Look for Peters to also be named the Defensive Rookie of the Year shortly.
Charles Woodson had some advise for Mr. Peters after his final game:
In Johnson’s case, the story is amazing. Johnson tore his Achilles tendon in the first week of the 2014 season and most believed his career would either be over, or severely diminished moving forward. Instead, Johnson broke the franchise’s all-time record or tackles while amassing 116 tackles with four sacks and a pair of interceptions.
Congrats to Johnson and Peters for well-earned recognition.
