Kurt Warner signs with Arizona

Manny signing with the Dodgers wasn’t the only big Free Agent re-signing. You have to jump leagues to the NFL though for the other big signing of the day. Kurt Warner and the Arizona Cardinals agreed to a two-year, $23 million deal, $19 million of which is guaranteed. Unlike Manny, the likeable Kurt actually was willing to negotiate with the Cardinals.
Kurt has been unbelievable in Arizona throwing for exactly 8000 yards and 57 TDs the past two years. The signing is great news for Larry Fitzgerald owners, and the fact that Warner was willing to take less money, could allow the Card to make his other wideout, Anquan Boldin, happy with an extension of his own. After losing their Offensive Coordinator, it was key to have a veteran run the system. It would have probably been too much for Matt Leinart to handle.
