A second former Super Bowl MVP has signed a deal so that he can retire with his current team, Kurt Warner has signed a two-year $23 Million contract with $19 Million guaranteed.
"We're ecstatic about the commitment the organization has made to us," Warner said. "Now it's my job for the next two years to go fulfill my part of the deal."
Warner had previously visited with the San Francisco 49ers about joining their team, but many believed it was just a scare tactic to drive up the Cardinals price. But eventually realized that it was in his best interest to remain a Cardinal. He was also willing to take $1 million less a season if the team successfully satisfied the contract extension demands of wide receiver.
"I told my wife probably 45 minutes into it that I just felt God say 'You're supposed to be in Arizona,'" Warner said, "and I told her that. She tried to tell me to stay open, but He just continued to confirm it."
