Cardinals OLB Bertrand Berry announced his retirement from football Thursday.

The 34-year-old was still an effective situational pass rusher in 2009. He finishes his career with 65 sacks, including a career-high 14 1/2 back in 2004 -- the third-highest single-season total in franchise history. Season-ending injuries struck Berry in his final three years, limiting him to 27 of 48 games.

Berry was one of those DE's that should have stayed in Denver.

I agree, he would have helped the last couple years while we were in 4-3.

Plus he signed my hat one year, but so did Adrian Madise.

He's already trying to run Haynsworth out of Washington.

Bert had himself a nice NFL career with 65 sacks over 12 seasons....he would have had a lot more if not for all the injuries.

Cardinals outside linebacker Bertrand Berry announced his retirement Thursday night on a weekly radio show he co-hosts.

Berry played 12 seasons in the NFL, including the last six with the Cardinals. Berry finished his career with 65 sacks, including six this season in a part-time role.

Berry, 34, signed with the Cardinals in 2004 and made the Pro Bowl in his first season, finishing the year with 14 1/2 sacks. His next two seasons were cut short by injuries, but Berry played in 29 games over the past two seasons. He had 40 sacks with the Cardinals, ranking him sixth on the franchise's all-time list.

Berry entered the league with the Colts in 1997, a third-round draft pick out of Notre Dame. He spent three seasons with the Colts but was cut and spent the 2000 season out of football. He returned the next year with Denver and emerged as an elite pass rusher.

Ha! Ha! Ha!

Wow I had totally forgot that Berry was out of football the year before he emerged for us. Really goes to show how steep the learning curve can be for NFL pass rushers, something to keep in mind when watching the development of someone like Ayers over the next couple of years.

Heck maybe we should give Moss a year off from football, might be just what he needs Ha!

He's already trying to run Haynsworth out of Washington.

Haynesworth weighs 350 lbs and has become a situational player suddenly during he 2009 season. Yet in 2007 and 2008 he was an every down player!

Seems after Haynesworth signed his big contract he suddenly has no desire to play every down.

Sounds like Haynesworth is trying to run himself out of Wash.

He wasent really a situational player as much as he was "hurt" all season long. I agree the dude got paid and now hes moving on from football, but Mike sure did piss him off when he made it known they were going to switch to the 3-4.
