Eric Berry is the first of two players from the 2010s on this list. He's an all-time favorite in Knoxville and earned the same status in Kansas City throughout his NFL career. Berry earned five Pro Bowls and three All-Pro honors, was named 2015 AP and PFWA Comeback Player of the Year, and was named to the Hall of Fame All-2010s Team. 

Berry finished his career with 14 interceptions, five touchdowns, and 445 total tackles. His final two seasons in the league were riddled with injuries, and he only played in three combined games in 2017 and 2018. Berry unceremoniously retired from the NFL after the Chiefs released him in 2019 to save some money, ending his great NFL career. 

On top of his Hall of Fame career, he also faced a battle with cancer in 2014. He was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, beat it, and returned for the 2015 season, playing just as well as he had been before he left.
