Arizona Cardinals pay tribute to retiring Dan Dierdorf
The St. Louis Cardinals selected Dierdorf in the second round of the 1971 NFL Draft out of Michigan, and he spent his entire 13-year career wearing the red and white. Dierdorf was a six-time Pro Bowler and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1996.
After football, Dierdorf moved to the broadcast booth, where he spent the next 29 years as an analyst for ABC and CBS. His last game behind the mic came Saturday night in New England's AFC Divisional Playoff win over Indianapolis.
Saturday, the Arizona Cardinals -- the team that employed Dierdorf for his entire playing career -- took out an ad in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, thanking him for his contributions to the game.
Classy move, Cardinals. And congrats on a great career, Mr. Dierdorf.
