Congrats to Kendricks, who definitely deserves this! He had to replace Mike Mohamed and move back from the outside to the inside, which was no easy task. And with some injuries to our outside linebackers the past few months, his role is more important than ever. Leading one of the top defenses in the conference with so little help is hard to do, but Kendricks stepped up and handled it all and excelled while doing it!
