KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee twins Elliott and Evan Berry say they don't feel extra pressure trying to follow their older and very successful brother.

Eric Berry starred for Tennessee from 2007-09 before getting selected in the first round of the NFL draft. He earned his third Pro Bowl selection with the Kansas City Chiefs last year.

He left rather high standards for his younger brothers to meet. If that's worrying the Berry twins as they prepare to begin their college careers, they aren't letting it show. Elliott Berry says, "I don't really see it as a burden."

Elliott is playing linebacker and Evan's at safety for Tennessee. Neither is a likely starter when Tennessee opens the season Aug. 31 against Utah State, but both are expected to play.
