Frustrated over continually being beat out for the starting job by young quarterbacks, Kurt Warner says he might hang it up after the season.
This might be the final season for Kurt Warner in the NFL. The 35-year-old Arizona Cardinals quarterback, who lost his starting job to rookie Matt Leinart last week, said Thursday he is considering retirement after this season. “Definitely I’m thinking about my next step and what’s best for me and all those things,” he said.
Warner, in one of the NFL’s great success stories, went from the Arena Football League and NFL Europe to lead St. Louis to two Super Bowls. He is in the first year of a three-year contract he signed with the Cardinals in February, but he realizes his future in Arizona would be as a backup.
Since his MVP days with the Rams, Warner has lost starting jobs to Marc Bulger in St. Louis, Eli Manning with the New York Giants and now Leinart.
Frankly, I’m not sure what he’d do the next two years that would pay him the kind of money the Cardinals have committed to. There are worse things than being a highly paid NFL backup quarterback.
