WATCH: Derrick Johnson levels teammate Jamaal Charles

The NFL has been the most popular sport for the last 30 years.  It also happens to be one of the most violent sports, and sometimes players accidentally wind up hurting a teammate just from being at the wrong place at the wrong time.  But it’s incredibly rare for an All-Pro linebacker to clash into an All-Pro running back when the two star players are on the same team.  That...

That would be because both of them are now going to the Pro Bowl in place of players who needed to drop out.

Chiefs' Johnson on Mack Brown: 'He's always been a father figure in my life'

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Derrick Johnson isn't going to kick his old college coach while he's down. Or on his way out.

"He's done...

Chiefs' Johnson having another starring season

This is precisely what Derrick Johnson envisioned when he first stepped into the Kansas City Chiefs locker room as a wide-eyed rookie coming off a record-setting career at Texas.

Chiefs' Johnson: 'Looked like beginning of season'

Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson was the only player to utter what everyone must have been thinking Sunday afternoon: Kansas City's 31-3 loss to Miami looked awfully familiar.
