The Kansas City Chiefs are giving Eric Berry’s younger brother, Elliott Berry, a chance to make an impression, according to Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star. Paylor reports the team is bringing in Berry to rookie minicamp next week.

The younger Berry brother went undrafted this past weekend. He is an undersized outside linebacker, coming in at 5-foot-11 and 206 pounds. He played at Tennessee the past three seasons, appearing in 21 games while tallying 68 tackles, 5.5 for a loss, 1.5 sacks, one interception and one fumble recovery.

His twin brother, Evan, has signed with the Cleveland Browns as an undrafted free agent.

A three-star safety coming out of Creekside High School (GA), Berry could potentially make the move back to safety after playing linebacker for the Vols the past three years. It’s a pretty classy move by the organization to give one of its top stars’ brothers a shot at making it in the NFL.

The elder Berry brother will be attempting another big comeback this season after missing almost the entire 2017 campaign with a ruptured Achilles tendon.
