Steelers cornerback Fernando Bryant announced his retirement today following a 10-year NFL career.

Bryant, 32, signed with the Steelers on Nov. 11, 2008 and saw action in two regular-season games.

He was inactive for the Steelers' final five regular-season games and their playoff victories over San Diego and Baltimore and their triumph over Arizona in Super Bowl XLIII.

Bryant was originally drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars with the 26th overall pick in 1999. He also played with Detroit in a career that saw him start 109 of 112 games played.
