Cardinals DE Bertrand Berry Retires

Daniel KablackCorrespondent IIIJanuary 22, 2010

Cardinals defensive end Bertrand Berry has announced his retirement from the NFL after 12 years in the league.

The Colts' third-round pick out of Notre Dame in 1997, Berry was converted to a defensive end after being selected as a linebacker.

He played for the Colts, the Denver Broncos, and the Arizona Cardinals.

Berry began to make an impact in the league starting in 2002 when he recorded a career high 6.5 sacks along with 14 solo tackles.

His numbers would improve until 2004, when he reached his pinnacle with the Arizona Cardinals.

Berry recorded 49 total tackles, 14.5 sacks, and four forced fumbles in 2004. Since then, his numbers have declined. Having recorded only nine solo tackles and six sacks this year, many believed that Berry might be debating retirement.

Berry finishes his career with 303 total tackles, 65 sacks, and 16 forced fumbles.
