    AZ reaches deal with Warner

    Tempe, AZ – The Arizona Cardinals Football Club today announced that the team has agreed to terms with quarterback Kurt Warner on a three-year contract. In accordance with club policy, terms were not disclosed.

    The 34-year old Warner (6-2, 219) started 10 games for the Cardinals in 2005, completing 242 passes on 375 attempts (64.5%) for 2,713 yards, 11 touchdowns and 9 interceptions. His 64.5% completion percentage set a new team, breaking the previous record set by Steve Beuerlein (61.7%) in 1993.

    Warner’s 85.8 quarterback rating last season was the best QB rating for a Cardinals signal caller since Neil Lomax in 1988 (86.7) and his five 300+ passing games in 2005 led the NFL and were the most 300+ passing games he has had since his NFL MVP season of 2001.

    Warner has authored one of the greatest success stories in NFL history. After first playing in the Arena Football League and NFL Europe, he went onto star for the St. Louis Rams and was twice selected as the league’s Most Valuable Player (1999 and 2001). A three-time Pro Bowl selection, he was also named the MVP of Super Bowl XXXIV by leading the Rams to a win over the Tennessee Titans.

    After spending the 1998-2003 seasons with St. Louis, he played the 2004 season with the New York Giants appearing in 10 games (nine starts) with the Giants. The former Northern Iowa product has appeared in 73 games (69 starts) over his eight seasons in the NFL and has passed for 19,214 yards and 119 touchdowns. His completion percentage of 65.7 (1,537-2,340) is the highest ever in the NFL and his quarterback rating of 94.1 is second in NFL history among quarterbacks who have thrown at least 1,500 passes (Steve Young, 96.8).

    Good for Kurt. I think he did some impressive things in Arizona despite an injury plagued Cardinal team. Things should be better for them in 2006. Not too much better I hope.

    I'm sure it's only coincidence that the Cardinals moved to lock up Warner just days after he speculated it might be "intriguing", "fun" and "really exciting" to play under Martz in Detroit.

    Good for him. Glad to see him staying put for a while. The Martz reunion would have been interesting, but I'm glad he got his contract.
