Arizona Cardinals' 2009 Roster Analysis: Defense and Special Teams

No.92 hangs up the cleats.

Bertrand Berry was the first official chip to fall for the Cardinals this offseason by retiring at age 34 the other day. He finished his Cardinals career with the sixth-most sacks in franchise history. Not bad for six seasons especially considering three were shortened by injury.

Berry’s 2004 signing was significant because it was one of the first indicators that the Arizona franchise was ready and willing to truly change its past. They had a need and they went out and signed an effective free agent, instead of the other way around (after a player fills a need they are lost to FA). Berry's 14.5 sacks and the Pro Bowl in his first year was a glowing success.

If it weren’t for injuries, he may have posted double digit sacks every year. He will be missed, but regardless, it was time for the Cardinals to develop some younger talent at his position.
