On Friday, 38-year-old quarterback Kurt Warner will announce to the world whether or not he will return to the Arizona Cardinals next season.
Should the former Super Bowl champion decide to ride off into the sunset, he’ll be exiting the game with two NFL MVP Awards and one Super Bowl MVP Award.
And while some may argue Warner’s place in history and whether or not he is a future Hall of Famer, here’s the interesting part (cue dramatic music):
Warner’s own team is in the dark about his decision.
As of Wednesday afternoon, the Cardinals had not been informed of what Warner-a father of seven children-plans on telling the media on Friday, according to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic.
While some are speculating and some reporting that Warner will retire, others believe he still has enough gas left in the tank to return to the team for one more run. The Pro Bowl quarterback completed 66.1% of his passes for 3,753 yards with 26 touchdowns in 2009 for a quarterback rating of 93.2.
If Warner should announce on Friday that he is retiring, the question shouldn’t be whether or not he is headed to the Hall of Fame.
It should be whether or not Cardinals fans are ready for the Matt Leinart era to begin.
