Redding announced his retirement Wednesday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.
The 13-year veteran took to Twitter to officially announce his retirement from the NFL at age 35. Redding spent last season with the Cardinals, appearing in 12 games and recording four tackles, one interception and two passes defended. For his career, Redding recorded 35.5 sacks, 313 tackles, two safeties and two picks across 188 games for the Lions, Seahawks, Ravens, Colts and Cardinals.
The Cardinals have released Redding.
The move saves the Cardinals $3 million against their salary cap, with the 35-year-old Redding -- who logged five tackles and a pick in 12 games in 2015 -- now a candidate to provide veteran defensive line depth elsewhere.
The Cardinals announced that they've signed defensive end Cory Redding to a two-year contract on Wednesday.
