Eric Berry's poignant homecoming is this week's feel-good NFL story
NFL star Eric Berry played in his hometown of Atlanta on Sunday for the first time since becoming the fifth overall pick of the 2010 draft. The Kansas City Chiefs safety returned an interception for a touchdown, then gave the ball to his mother in the stands immediately after scoring to help his team to a big late-season win.
That’s quite the inspirational homecoming in itself — but only the beginning of this story.
The last time Berry went home to Atlanta during an NFL season, you see, it was to receive chemotherapy.
