I don’t know about you, but I never really thought there was much chance that Kurt Warner wasn’t going to come back to the National Football League in 2009. I suppose I didn’t much think about the possibility of him going to start anew somewhere other than Phoenix, but with each passing day, the likelihood increases. Kurt Warner joined Dan Patrick on Friday to discuss being a free agent.
“We haven’t seen eye to eye on the market that’s out there. So I think my agent and the Cardinals are kinda sometimes just looking at apples and oranges and we just got to get on the same page, then hopefully something can get worked out.”
True or false on whether or not he is demanding to be paid a top-5 QB in the game:
“That’d be nice. I don’t know what the deal-breaker is. I think my whole goal is to be compensated fairly for what I’ve done. You know, exactly what that number is, is what I’m trying to figure out. But you know I believe for the length of my contract with the Cards, I’ve been undervalued. And now I’m in a position where I’m going to be able to receive market value and that’s what I want to do.”
On whether Warner would take less money if it meant WR Anquan Boldin would be back in Arizona as well:
“I would definitely consider that. There’s no question that I would be willing to adjust my deal to keep the pieces in place, and specifically to keep Anquan here.”
