There reportedly was an outside chance (and I mean Harry Doyle “Juuust a bit outside” chance) that noted Jesus freak Kurt Warner and his three Super Bowl appearances might return to the Arizona Cardinals for a 17th season of pro football. The reasoning behind such a move, admittedly, seemed rather sound on its face.
Some believe Warner assumed he’d automatically get a job covering the NFL on one of the networks. To date, he hasn’t. And, by now, the assignments for 2011 are largely firmed up.
So if Warner won’t have a TV gig in 2010, the thinking is that he could be lured back to the gridiron.
And the Cardinals, who are saddled with Matt Leinart and Derek Anderson, could be interested in bringing him back. –PFT.
But Warner already has quashed (squashed?) that rumor in the bud.
Warner did land a job with NFL Network calling games for the Arena league, where he threw 183 TD passes in his three seasons with the Iowa Barnstormers. Maybe they could use another quarterback. Or another grocery bagger. Only prostitutes in Vietnam sport more diverse resumes than Warner, but their aren’t many grocery stores in Vietnam, either.
