[KC Chiefs.com] The Chiefs added two more Pro Bowlers to this past season’s haul, and this time, they’re both defenders.
Veteran linebacker Tamba Hali, who led the AFC in sacks in 2010, and rookie safety Eric Berry were late additions to the NFL’s all-star game after the Super Bowl participants were decided Sunday.
Berry is the first Chiefs rookie to reach the Pro Bowl since Derrick Thomas after the 1989 season, and Hali also follows Thomas as the first Chiefs linebacker to reach the all-star contest since the 1997 season.
The Chiefs will have four representatives on offense, including running back Jamaal Charles, wide receiver Dwayne Bowe and guard Brian Waters. Quarterback Matt Cassel was also selected to the team last week after New England’s Tom Brady was unable to participate after undergoing foot surgery.
