Report: Warner likely to retire
Adam Schefter of ESPN.com is reporting that Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner is likely to retire after this season, according to a source.
The 38-year-old quarterback threw for 3,753 yards with 28 touchdowns and 14 interceptions this season while leading the Cardinals to a 10-6 record and a second consecutive NFC West divisional title.
Warner, a 12-year veteran out of Northern Iowa, has played in three Super Bowls (2000, 2002 and 2009), been voted to five Pro Bowls and won two NFL MVP Awards (1999, 2001).
He won the Super Bowl in 2000 when his St. Louis Rams defeated the Tennessee Titans 23-16.
If Warner does retire, the door will be open for former USC standout Matt Leinart to take over the starting role in Arizona.
Cardinals fans just let out a collective gasp.
