PHOENIX - Former Notre Dame standout and Arizona Cardinals outside linebacker Bertrand Berry announced his retirement Thursday night on a weekly radio show he co-hosts in Phoenix. 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.
