article imageNFL: Kurt Warner Likely to Retire

By Michael Bearak     Jan 10, 2010 in Sports
Reports from Arizona say that quarterback Kurt Warner will be retiring after the season. The 38 year-old Warner has two Super Bowl MVP. one Super Bowl victory, and five pro bowl selections.
Kurt Warner's story is amazing. He was stocking the shelves at a local grocery store. He met his wife Brenda and later adopted her two children. He has always recognized God first and foremost in everything he has done and in all that he has accomplished.
Now it is being reported by ESPN that Warner will be retiring at the end of the season.
The man who was undrafted out of college. Who was invited to try out for the Green Bay Packers in 1994 but let go before the start of the season but eventually let two different teams to the Super Bowl may finally be calling it quits.
Warner was offered a tryout with the Chicago Bears in 1997 but a spider bite suffered on his honeymoon kept him from attending. In 1998 he was signed by the St. Louis Rams as a back-up and sent to NFL Europe. He returned in 1999 to back-up Trent Green, who was injured in a preseason game and would miss the season. The rest is pretty much history as he won the Super Bowl against the Tennessee Titans and became the sixth player in history to be the regular season MVP and the Super Bowl MVP in the same season.
After a season with the New York Giants in 2005 he went to the Arizona Cardinals in 2006 and then after the 2008 campaign he led the Cardinals to the 2009 Super Bowl against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
He is the only quarterback to throw for over 14,000 yards with two different teams and is one of two players to throw for over 100 touchdowns with two different teams. In 2008 at the age of 37 he became the oldest quarterback to throw for 30 touchdowns in a season as well.
